In a couple of places, there’s a strange tense problem going on. One of the ways we get around this in ethnography is writing in what we call the “ethnographic present.” If you’re telling a story about something that happened in full, then you tell it in the first-person present tense. Then when you refer back to it while you write, it’s in the past tense. That might help your writing flow a bit better here.
