Tomas in Chicvasco, 2017

Street vendor at Real del Monte

So there I was, two days into a four-day vacation visiting my uncle and cousins who I’d not seen in forty years. I was looking at a menu and realizing that although I’ve become much prouder and more atune with my Mexican heritage, that I was still, in many ways, “pocho.”

Interesting numbers

Was having a discussion with Twitter user @dblozik regarding presidential fundaisers. Who attended how many,etc. So I looked up some numbers related to fundraisers and vacations. Here are some interesting Presidential statistics for those that like numbers. (I may add more items to this list). References are provided.
