Go Bilingual/ Ahora Bilingue

OK people, it is the time for me to tray to do this in English, to write and make more public my mistakes in this language, and keep trying to improve my grammar, I know, Spanish is more fun, but I need to try, and everybody is welcome to comment and correct me... I mean the idea is now make my blog an English exercise, and why not, approach what I have to say to only english readers. If not well I'm just killing to languages at the same time....

Tratare de hacer ahora mis post en Ingles y Español. Todos están invitados, como siempre a hacer sus comentarios y correcciones en ambos idiomas, aunque algunos se que piensan que mis horrores de ortografía son lo que le da un poco de carácter a las incoherencias que escribo... bueno pero no se preocupen queridos seguidores de la cosa en mi cabeza, mis incoherencias y horrores ortográficos serán ahora en dos idiomas, o mejoro en alguno de los dos, o arranco a machacar dos idiomas a la vez....

What we started a drunken night out

I met Justin in Medellin in May 2007, while he was traveling around Colombia before moving to D.C to attend school. He visited Bogotá and the coffee country before arriving in Medellin, where he stayed at a hostel where one of my best friends, and occasional I, used to work. While I waited for my friend to finish her shift before going out, I saw him first and everything about him grabbed my attention. I remember asking my friend who he was but she was in a bad mood and wanted only to go out and dance the day off. I was glad when I saw him again at the bar I was dancing with friends. Yes, he was good looking and a good dancer but there was something else that made my eyes glued onto him. It was kind of embarrassing— it’s not the Latina seductive style to stare— but I couldn’t stop. Anyway, I’m not really a shy person so, in the end, it didn’t matter that much. Eventually, we found ourselves dancing with each other, pretended to talk and kissed.


We run into each other again the next nig…

Ser mujer: un inevitablemente riesgoso destino

En el 2006 mi amiga Caro y yo viajamos juntas por Israel y Egipto. Juntas empacabamos maletas, viajamos por horas y nos aventurabamos a tierras, no solo lejanas, si no de idiomas y tradiciones ajenas a las nuestras. Juntas recorrimos pueblos y ciudades— de esas que escuchábamos en las misas del colegio los miércoles o veíamos en las siempre repetidas películas de la semana santa—, en las que nos hospedábamos en casas de amigos de amigos, hoteles que salían en libros, que algún "conocido" había recomendado o encontrabamos en Internet.  Caro y yo, así como imagino Mariana y Maria José, las mochileras argentinas, emprendimos ese viaje, a pesar de algunas reservas de familiares y amigos, para conocer lo diferente, aprender de otros, y saborear el mundo. Viajabamos para crecer, para ser.

Siempre me ha dolido aceptar la realidad de que las dos volvimos sanas y salvas por "debuenas*" porque esas reservas de familiares, amigos y hasta propias, están arraigadas en la real…

In the Land of Freedom

Since the arrival of the first European immigrants to North American the country known today as: The United States of America started to be built on immigrant blood.From mass immigration though Ellis Island, New York, in the early 1900’s to crossing the border walking the deserts of Texas or Arizona today, the idea of America as the land of freedom, where the sky is the limit, has attracted and continues attracting immigrants around the globe. For many years, in order to control the unstoppable immigration; which has apparently transformed into a problem, thought the years different immigration polices and strategies has been used being Secure Communities being one of the most recent.Although Secure Communities has effectively deported dangerous criminals, the program should not be enforced nationwide as a federal law because it breaks apart American families while reducing the cooperation between illegal immigrant communities and local police.After the attacks on September 11th the D…
