Lourdes and Benigno by Phil Borges

Lourdes and Benigno

Lourdes (age 9) gets up at five o’clock in the morning to take her cows up the mountain before school begins. After school she makes the three-mile trek back up the mountain to retrieve the cows and returns home to help her mother cook dinner. She carries her sister Benigno (age 18 mos.) with her most of the day. At school she currently speaks Quechua, her native language, but next year she will be taught in Spanish. Quechua. Willoq, Peru.
