I have been giving Chivirico 5 pesos a day to spend at the school shop which gets him a cup of juice and a biscuit. Some of the bigger boys have been stealing his money, and so he has decided the best way to deal with it is to become stronger so they are scared of him. He wanted to go to the local gym to lift weights to make himself stronger, but couldn't afford it, and also the weights were a tad big for him.
The solution was to make his own out of two plastic bottles filled with sand, and a wooden stick in between them.
He was keen to show me that he knows all the different types of exercise for each muscle group!
