On Sunday afternoon I brought my godson (born in 2004) and his mother to the airport.
They will spend most of the summer in Bolivia.
I asked my godson: “What’s the second thing you will do after arriving in Bolivia?” Because the first thing he usually does in La Paz is vomiting. Probably it’s the altitude sickness.
And I must add he is an extremely good vomiter.
A few days ago we were having dinner in a Japanese restaurant.
Halfway the dinner my godson asked: “Can I go the bathroom?” “Of course,” I answered.
We could hear him vomiting.
After five minutes he came back and he finished his meal.
