Juan had been meaning to write home for a few days, but he just hadn't found the time. Between getting lost in the castle and managing to stumble across a bunch of lost items, trying out for Quidditch and trying to duel, not to mention the actual class part of school... He just hadn't had time to sit down and write a letter to anyone. Besides, he didn't have an owl, and he'd only just found out that the school had some he could use to send letters home.
So, he marched up to the owlery and handed the bird his letter. No one had ever really clued him in on how owls knew where to go or why they just suddenly knew how to send letters, or if they'd even wait around for his family to send something back. Honestly, he didn't know anything about anything at the moment, but at least he had ages to figure it all out.
What if they weren't even home though? That sounded like a Garcia thing, if he was honest. But maybe, hopefully, at least one of his sisters would realise he might try to send letters home and had decided to stay behind this time around.
He offered the bird a little pat on the head before sending her off. The way she teetered in the wind worried him, but he chalked it up to just... wind. Hopefully.
I'm at Hogwarts. It's Juan, by the way. So I've been super busy. There's Quidditch here, kinda like the ones Chava and Tio Pelos play, so I am really hoping I make the team for that. Oh, there's houses, like categories kind of. Apparently, I'm in the house of evil people, so I don't really know what to think about that. Just fair warning to Tony, I'm apparently evil, so stop taking my stuff.
Um, what else? There's food here that's just magicked into existence, and like, that's really cool, but it's so bland, honestly. Like, where are the tortas? Or even the Tapatio? There's no freaking Tapatio sauce. Or Cholula. Or Maggie. Literally no sauces anywhere. It's so frustrating, everything tastes like Helena's cooking. Don't tell her I said that.
I've also gotten into classes and stuff. There's no math. I thought that was weird. Or science. We just have astronomy, flying, potions, and herbology. I think we have more classes next term or something. I don't know. I got into this thing called dueling, and it's basically like boxing, but with spells. Ask abuela when you see her. Is she back in El Dorado or is she still at home? Because I'm thinking of going back in December.
So yeah, send a response with the bird. I think. I don't know how this works. Bye!
The entirety of the letter is in Spanish.
