`Verdad! Verdad!' breathed Juana awestruck. `You have been to all the countries, and there are no such people! - But in your country, they are all gringos? Nothing but gringos?'
She meant, no real people and salt of the earth like her own Mexican self.
`They are all people like me,' said Kate coldly.
`Like you, Nina? And they all talk like you?'
'Yes! Like me.'
`And there are many?'
`Many! Many!'
