PSIP Description: 
Maya fills the community center with Mexican objects and food to help her homesick cousin Tito.
Long Description: 
Maya notices something's wrong with Tito. He's not interested in playing soccer or eating ice cream. Is he sick? It turns out he's homesick. It all starts when Tito gets a postcard from his cousins in Mexico. Tito misses them and misses his former home. Maya, eager to help her cousin feel better, decides that if they can't take Tito back to Mexico, they'll bring Mexico to Tito! Maya ropes the rest of the gang into helping her with the research and acquisition of Mexican objects, foods, and information. Events escalate with typically Maya-esque results, and pretty soon the Community Center is packed with all things Mexican. Unfortunately, one thing leads to another, and the entire display is destroyed... right before Tito gets to the Center. Maya is mortified, but Tito is happy. Seeing how much everyone cared about him helped to lift his homesickness. After all, he is home with Maya, too. Just then the big surprise appears: Tito's cousins, brought from Mexico!
