    Dear Santiago;
    I am enjoy your poem, “Where I’m From,” because where did you wrote that I am from Chinese food where our restaurant is big and nice for you and your family
    I am from The big Green School where you can learn new things
    I am from MCdonald’s big and clean there is a lot of very rich food and soda.
    I can say that you were so enjoying the food too.
    I like how you describe about your family and how they are.
    And I like that is long too. And how you describe your food in your language. And write words in your language that you suppose to write.
    Thanks for your poem.

    Esa parte que dices ” Im not Mexican but i like their food” es algo en lo cual estamos totalmente deacuerdo me encanta la comida mexicana y de different places.. Something your poem makes me think about is the food that we eat from other places.
