Santo llamando a Lunave

It’s been a while since my last post in this space. Apparently having a job is very time-consuming, but it is also very rewarding since I get to do what I like. I spent most of my days writing for Mundo Hispánico in Atlanta, Georgia, where the Republican-led government approved and signed an Arizona-like law. You can figure that gives for a lot of scribbling.

Nonetheless, I didn’t want to leave this space vacant and decided to drop a line to catch up and visit this old spot. I promise to have some updates soon. In the meantime, I leave you guys with the video for the song that gives title to this posting.
