THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: HARPO CELAYA ON SURVIVING THE U.S.S. INDIANAPOLIS, EDUARDO DÍAZ ON WHEN HERITAGE TOURISM LEAVES THINGS OUT, DIANE VELARDE HERNÁNDEZ ON MAKING TAMALES AND CAPIROTADA FOR THE HOLIDAYS AND SERGIO HERNÁNDEZ ON ROY MOORE.
Hola Latinopians! This week we conclude our interview with Adolfo “Harpo” Celaya, survivor of the sinking of the U.S.S. Indianapolis in 1945. In this gripping conclusion he tells of being rescued after five days adrift in shark infested waters of the Pacific. Also this week, Eduardo Díaz returns with his monthly bog, this time he looks at “When heritage tourism doesn’t tell the whole story.” The theme is about revisiting ancient Mexican and American history landmarks and why that sometimes isn’t so successful. Check it out.
And for the holidays, we reprise Diane Velarde Hernández’s delicious recipes for making tamales and capirotada, two items much in demand at Christmas time. You’ve never tried making tamalaes? Come on now,dale chanza!
And be sure to visit Angela Ortiz’s photographic look at a landmark corner in east Los Angeles: Brooklyn and Boyle!
And lastly, no week would be complete without a Serg Hernández’s cartoon essay, this week it’s a look at accused child molester and defeated Congressional candidate Roy Moore.
Enjoy your week on Latinopia!
