My First SpanishFriday

Altar 2011

Paper flowers y más: my altar in the Panteón de Sacramento 2011

This week, as I searched for tutorials on how to make paper flowers for an upcoming workshop I am teaching (location, date and cost TBA), I found who I believe is my long-lost twin, Tracy López, better known by her website name, Latinaish. While the tutorial Tracy posted on how to make zempasúchil is informative, what fascinated and drew me into the site was Tracy’s incredible sense of humor, and like me, appreciation and love for all things Latin.


Latinaish: Tracy Lopez

Although our lives are different – I travel, teach and anticipate visiting all 21 Spanish-speaking countries, while Tracey is married and lives in DC with her family, including her husband Carlos, from El Salvador (the story of how they met is adorable) – I already feel a kindred spiritual affection for this guerita linda, who also loves to mix her Spanish and English, post about movies and music en español and make light of situations lost in translation that most often end with laughter.


On Fridays, Tracy posts in Spanish, so I am adopting this for my blog and adding myself to her list of SpanishFriday participants. While I love español so much could post every day in Spanish, this one-day-a-week method keeps me in check and levels my paciencia, something I lack in my excitement to become fluent. So, here you have it: My first SpanishFriday. ¡Gracias, Tracy por tu amistad! 

SpanishFriday Uno: REIK


mi primera foto de el grupo REIK en concierto ¡ahhhh hermosos!

Muchos años antes, cuando yo vivi en mi departamento de Midtown cerca calles H y 17, yo descubre un grupo de rock en español, REIK. Atraído por sus caras guapas, buena música con letras de canciones sentimiento, sincero y romántico, yo rápidamente aprende todos los canciones y me convertí en fanático. Por tres años, yo escucho de la música de REIK, cantar todos las palabras y disfrutando las notas.

El película que empezó mi amor por REIK: Yo Quisera

En noviembre 2012, me mudé de Guadalajara, Jalisco México y más tarde mudar a Puerto Vallarta. Pronto después, REIK anunciado un concierto en Zapopan, cerca GDL. Yo comprado los billetes y invitado mi amigo Vladimir a ven conmigo.

Antes el concierto: una día compras a la talavera en Tonála

An April me viajado por la autobús ETN y cinco horas más tarde, llegado en Tlajomulco de Zuniga, donde Vladimir vive.


Afuera el concierto de REIK con Vladimir en Zapopan

Juntos nos atender el concierto a la auditorio TelMex. Con buenos asientos cerca del escenario, Vladimir y yo disfrutado la música de uno de mis grupos favoritos por horas. Esta es un noche yo nunca olvidar.


¡Mis Besos, mi foto! estábamos muy cerca del escenario

Gracias a Dios por mi vida buena… ¡especialmente cuando mis sueños hecho realidad!

No Particular Place To Go

We're baby boomers who are currently in Central America and have been traveling since September, 2012 after opting out of the "American Dream" and selling everything. Life as long-term travelers has challenged and changed us in unexpected ways, greatly enriched our lives and proven to be far more than we'd hoped for...
