to North America. Have you seen or eaten any of
them? Do you like to try new foods? What are the
special foods at your family’s celebrations?
- Alex and her father run long distances together
as a sport. In the U.S., it is not surprising to see
a father and daughter running together. Would
it be surprising in your country? What kinds
of things do fathers and daughters usually do
together in your country?
