Our oldest “was susa” (watch sister) and the one who looked out for us and helped us most with cultural cues was Cristofelda--Cris for short. The oldest unmarried girl in the family at 25, she was a really good friend to Liz and I and we felt free to ask her all sorts of questions about how and what we should do in all kinds of situations.

Here, she sits with Liz in our kitchen; washing pots with her 2-year-old brother, Tony; and making tapioc wraps (tapioc mash which is wrapped in a leaf and then boiled in cocnut milk—pretty good stuff!)
