LATINOPIA THIS WEEK: YOGA TALK WITH JULIE CARMEN, PRESIDENT OBAMA’S CUBA ANNOUNCEMENT, SAL BALDENEGRO ON A CHRISTIAN CHRISTMAS, SERGIO HERNÁNDEZ ON A BARRIO CHRISTMAS AND MORE BEST OF VIDEOS.
Hola mis queridos Latinopians! Your Tia Tenopia is all a flutter with the holidays, shopping, parties and this week’s historic announcement by President Barack Obama of a sea change in U.S. Cuban relations. If you’ve been buried in a mine shaft for the past fifty years or are a millennial you may not be aware of the frosty relations that have exited between the U.S. and Cuba. For a background on this history and the full text of President Obama’s announcement check out the Latinopia Document: “Obama on Cuba.”
This week we launch Yoli Carmen’s monthly video blog, “Yoga Talk with Julie Carmen.” In this
first video licensed family therapist and yoga therapist Julie Carmen talks about how yoga can be helpful for people suffering from depression. Check it out!
And this week we have two takes on Christmas, one from our monthly blogger Sal Baldenegro and another from our regular cartoon blogger, Sergio Hernández.
As the year comes to a close we showcase how to make two traditional Christmas foods, tamales and capirotada and offer some more of our best videos of this past year.
Here’s wishing you and yours a muy Felix Navidad and a Prospero Ano Nuevo!
