Dear Editor:

I fell on Umarán on the way up to Calzada de la Estación. I think I just tripped on the sidewalk. I was bleeding from a couple of cuts on my face and shaken. Several people came to the rescue—a woman walking on the street, a man came out of a shop with a roll of toilet paper to stop the bleeding, and a woman stopped her car in the middle of the street to see if she could help. They all scooped me up and put me in the car so she could drive me all the way to my home!

Any Spanish I know vanished, so the kind woman in the car called a friend to translate. I told him that I was OK and that I could get his friend close to my house. We were at the gate at Rinconada de Aldea, I was only a couple blocks from where I live, and I told the woman that I was OK and could walk from there. I hope she didn’t think I was ungrateful that I got out before she got me to my house. But I didn’t want to inconvenience her any more than I already had. I looked worse than I felt, and I really was OK to walk.

I’m sorry that I can’t write this in Spanish. But I want her and everyone else who stopped to know that I am fine thanks to them—just a couple of cuts where my glasses and sunglasses cut into my face, a little sore in the knees and on one hand. I am so thankful to them all and want them to know how much I love the kind, generous, HELPFUL people of San Miguel. Willie Williams

PS I continue to take Spanish classes, so I will be better at communicating in Spanish some day!

Willie William
