My mom came here with her sisters before I was born. My mom has 12 brothers and sisters. She's nice. She's from Laos. She liked about Laos was that she had a lot of free time and got to hang out with her sisiters alot and had alot of friends there. My mom like the rice. Her dad and mom grew and made the rice and sold it. Bequan was her favorite food. It's like meat and cabbage and you can put spicey stuff in it. There are Laos temples here in chicago and my mom goes there and takes me with her and we say hello and bow to other people. The temple have monks there and pray there.
