Tia Tenopia here hoping you all got a chance to watch the cool moon eclipse on Sunday night! This week on Latinopia José Umpierre returns with his Burundanga Boricua blog. By now you have all heard about the mass of immigrants fleeing Syria and looking for a new home in Europe.Umpierre bounces off of this to take a long hard look at the mass exodus of Puerto Ricans from the island to the US, something that has now reached epic proportions. Please check out this eye-opening article. As always, Don José provides us with a Spanish and English version.
Our video this week comes from Julie Carmen. It is a continuation of her blog Yoga Talks with Julie Carmen. This week Yoga Tree Pose.
El Blogero Sincero (Dr. Margarito García) concludes his three-part look at the phenomenon of Afro-Mesoamericans. To make for easier reading, Latinopia has put all three essays together in one blog. Check out “Afro MesoAmericans Parts I,II and III.”
Later in the week we’ll be showcasing a new independently produced film by a husband and wife team which will soon be available on itunes a swell as theaters. Watch for our Latinopia interview with Jade Puga and Richard Montes and the trailer for their film Agurophonia.
