VALENTIN”S DAY IS HERE!
Hola my amourous and love struck peeps. Tia Tenopia here welcoming you to another week of Latinopia. This week we have a special Valentine’s Day video offering– poet Alejandro Molina reading his poem “San Valentín.” The poem is in Spanish and, although we have translated it, the humor in the poem is best appreciated if you are bilingual. I’ll say no more, but do check out this hilarious video. Also this week at Palo Alta College in San Antonio ,Texas, acclaimed artist César Martínez has an opening of his one man show on Wednesday, February 13th at 11AM. If you live in the San Antonio area, don’t miss it ! And who is César Martínez some of you may ask? Check out the this week’s Latinopioa Art video on his riveting art portraits of La Raza!
This week we introduce another regular feature on Latinopia, a new blog: Bravo Road with Don Felipe.
