Day nine we played the game La Lotería
Inspired by the hometown of my favorite stars
If you’re Latinx, you’ll likely familiar with
The original game set of 54 different cards
Where the cantor shuffles the deck of cards
They read a card and others place pinto beans
On their individual cards featuring the deck
While we might see El músico in the original
We see local favorites in our unique one
