Motion to make Juan Carlos the next president of Nacion Q’ueros

~bilingual in spanish and quechua at only 12 years old
~will soon be trilingual after studying the vocabulary provided to him by Hannah, which he neatly wrote down in his textbook
~knows how to harvest trutcha
~diplomatic behaviour when it comes to the decision regarding which of his mom’s questions to translate into Spanish and which not

In exchange for your vote Juan Carlos will:
~make his mom bring you papas in bed
~bring you extra blankets and self-handedly tug you in
~show you his trutchas
~guard you around his pueblo
~offer to help carry your stuff

Juan Carlos, we truly believe the world has a lot to offer for you and we were honored to spend our last night with you and your family in Nacion Q’ueros!
Yours truly, your biggest fans,
Hannah, Jillian, Sophie and Emmy
