1000 Americans: Samuel & Emilia, Puebla, Mexico

Hiram's parents, Puebla

Samuel & Emilia have build up a popular restaurant in , which is now mainly run by their sons. They had invited us into their home and made sure we were well taken care of.

They were worried about our trip and when we left Puebla, they hugged us close and shed some tears when praying for our safe journey. We are not religious ourselves, but the care and love of people that were strangers 3 days before keeps on surprising and warming us. So maybe the prayers do help as we will take care, so we can meet more great people like them and maybe one day return the favour.
