Columbia or Colombia? That Is the Question…
After years of living in the U.S. and hearing such wonderful things about Columbian stars, Columbian telenovelas or the Columbian economy, I made the wise decision to move close to the neighborhood. Alas, all I found there was a bunch of young people carrying books, going up and down some stairs and looking quite anxious about something.
Then I realized there was yet another Columbia, one that apparently is farther away, but promises to be a bit more fun.
Colombia, it seems, is actually a country in South America (whoa!) so this blogger is determined to give that one a chance.
My sources tell me I will not be able to find Queso “columbiano,” over there, but I think I’ll manage. [You cannot have your queso and eat it too, right?]
All this to say: This blog will be on vacation for a while, though I promise to check back real soon and let you know if the other Colombia was worth the wait.
Yeah! Latinas Sweep up Hollywood
When was the last time you saw a Latin actress portraying a surgeon or an architect in a Hollywood movie?
Here’s one of my favorite print ads promoting this year’s New York International Latino Film Festival.
