Posted by: | 2 Comments

This has got to be one of the most genius tourism campaigns I’ve seen.  I’m posting this as a surprise for Roxana because I know she will most likely cry out of happiness and nostalgia when watching this. Did you know there’s a town in Nebraska called Peru (without the accent)?  It’s a small town with less than 600 residents and almost no diversity amongst the folks. That’s until Perú (the country) and its cultural ambassadors (Chefs Gastón Acurio andRead More ...

Dia de las Madres/Mother's Day

Curious George Celebrates Latina Moms!

Posted by: | 3 Comments

Growing up, Spanish was my native tongue and I was learning English at a bilingual school and during trips to Houston to visit my dad.  For some reason, I always preferred reading in English. I clearly remember spending hours reading and reading the classic Curious George book. There was no TV show or George movies back then, he only existed as an illustration by H.A.  and Margret Ray. Over 30 years later, my daughter is now also a Curious GeorgeRead More ...
