2015 International Garifuna Convention

Maximo was born in NYC, but both of his parents were from Honduras. We had wonderful time hosting him!

Maximo was our guest during the convention. He was planning to practice his Spanish and Garifuna during the convention, so we all pretended Spanish was our first language. We were thankful to “be there” for him, though, when he got sick and just couldn’t think in any language but English. We were glad to provide a buffer zone in our house then, where he could speak English or not speak at all! We weren’t sure anyone would want to stay with a non-Garifuna family, but we think¬†Maximo enjoyed his stay!
