My host family didn't win any money in the lotto, despite their efforts.
But the family across the street from Monica and Jose Enrique did.
They won at least 14,000 euros, or about $18,300. They won with a ticket they bought at a political party fundraiser (the tickets will be 4 euros worth of a full ticket [remember, that's 200 euros for a full ticket], but they sell them for 5 euros).
Cristina said it doesn't even matter because those neighbors are pretty wealthy anyways (they live in a pretty nice house). Then again, it's not like we are comiendo patatas either.
