I’ve finally found what I’m going to give to my host family! It was actually a little harder than I thought it would be because I didn’t want to give them super cheesey Canada gifts where it looked like you were advertising Canada. I also wanted to make sure that the gifts could survive a plane ride and the heat.
Here is what I got for all of them to share. I know it’s not super Canadian but it was Chinese New Years and those are my favorite candies! I was thinking about salmon but Panama already has a lot of fish so I didn’t know if salmon would be very interesting.
Here’s what I got for the host mom.
Here is what I got for the older host brother.
Here is what I got for the younger host brother.
Here is what I got for the little host sister.
I’m really excited to meet them! I’ve contacted the host mom on WhatsApp and she’s really nice. She even got me a Spanish tutor I’ll meet with once a week!
