Only a few months after leaving home for Arizona State University, I went back to Nogales for my mom's birthday. During a conversation with my dad -- which tend to be intellectual -- I caught myself scrambling
for the correct way to say 'bachelor's degree' in Spanish. My dad leaned
back in his chair, let out a sarcastic laugh and said, "Nooo, ya se te
está olvidando el español a ti," which meant, "Oh boy, you're…

Mexicans don’t cook with measuring cups or spoons, organic herbs and spices, or extra-virgin olive oil.
Nah, we Mexicans follow some simpler guidelines: add a lot of consomé de pollo to everything, stock your pantry and fridge with at least nine types of hot sauces and chiles, and keep a ton of lard around —
preferably the one in the blue box — for holiday cooking.
Culinary traditions are one of the most important elements of culture. It…Continue

I had the fortunate experience of attending the Monologos de Vagina, the Spanish-language version of the Vagina Monologues in Austin, TX this past weekend. What a refreshing twist on the original I saw in NY City, read by its author Eve Ensler, when it opened in 1998. Some of the monologues particulary the one about women and war was especially poignant because of its reference to the disappearing women in Ciudad Juarez. The monologue put a spotlight on a large group of women silently…Continue

Well I have been back in Austin for a couple weeks now and have found it pretty difficult to write. I suppose part of it has to do with adapting to a new place and situation. Life here is quite different from the ejido life, obviously. Some people call it ‘culture shock.’ Although I speak some Spanish with friends, I now use English most of the time instead. My little house on the east side is…Continue
Breast Cancer, as we all know affects many lives. It affects the lives of the person who has it and their loved ones. It is not easy to deal with it and it is not easy to be the back bone for your loved one.
