Tesoro On The Web: Arte Y Vida Chicago

Fiesta_Boricua  Mi gente…yo soy bien Nuyorican but there is a special place that I sometimes go to that I feel is like home…that place is Chicago…the place I learned to make Jibarito sandwiches. Despite rapid the changing landscape of historically Boricua / Latino neighborhoods…there are still organizations dedicated to preserving our culture in these communities. This website Arte Y Vida Chicago, is my Tesoro of the web pick for this week…

Un saludo grandismo para my amiga Dulce Ramos….
