Summary
  • Francisco misses his village in El Salvador, and especially flying a kite with his friends, but Mamá can't afford to buy a kite, so he gathers discarded materials around his apartment building and makes his own, which catches the eye of a store owner and leads to a wonderful project
  • Francisco extraña a su pueblo en El Salvador, y especialmente volar una cometa con sus amigos, pero Mamá no puede permitirse el lujo de comprar una cometa, por lo que reúne a los materiales alrededor de su edificio de apartamentos descartado y hace su propia, lo que llama la atención del dueño de una tienda y conduce a un proyecto maravilloso
