My name is Salvadore and I’ve been coming to Canada for 20 years. I like the work. I like Canada too. Growing watermelon is hard work. Today, we’re hoeing the fields for the weeds. I think we’ll start picking melons in about three days. When I’m finished working here for the year, I go home to Mexico and my family – my brothers and everyone are there.
In Canada, in October when I’m working here, it’s too cold! And then I go home to Mexico where it’s always hot! It’s nice to be home then. When I was young, every Sunday I’d play football (soccer). Sometimes the guys here play soccer. Of the 12 of us, nine or ten play soccer.
