“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.”

This is a pretty good article exploring the mostly hidden history of Asian migration and presence in México. It’s pretty interesting and a great reminder that our heritage is not just Spanish, not just European, but also East-Asian and Malay, Melanesian and Polynesian among the rainbow of Indigenous Mexicans, Africans, Caribs and the eventual waves of immigrants in the 20th and 21st centuries from all over the world.
México is multiethnic, multicultural and has always been so. Y da orgullo.
