In photos: Two years on, from El Salvador to Guatemala, and Oaxaca to L.A., our pueblo lives on

Two years since our first sojourn through familial homelands in central America and beyond, one lesson remains: the need to continue discovering our cuentos in yet more places is as important as ever. Admittedly, this particular time is a difficult one for us to discover more of the world beyond familiar borders on foot, but that doesn’t mean we can’t take some time to learn about the world from afar through a good book; I’d say a good starting point would be Eduardo Galeano’s Open Veins of Latin America. Of course, it’s also said that a picture’s worth a thousand words, so here are a handful. More with yours truly once again soon, Los Angeles. And with hands extended in prayer for all the people of the world during this extraordinary time.

EPISODE 7 – CHINA, CUENTOS, JT

In our seventh episode, we reflect on our recent trip to China, which was much appreciated after a busy year of community work in Los Angeles. We also update listeners on the next phase of LOS CUENTOS for this winter season, as well as a new feature on Jimbo Times, the blog! It’s a jam-packed episode for all things in the land of JT.

From Shanghai, a Strange & Wondrous Place for Los Cuentos

I’ve come to learn that every city has something to say, but also that probably not enough can be said of just how important port-cities are for connecting one part of the globe to another. Maybe it was quite meant to be that we see this special place from China’s harbors then. But what do you say, Los Angeles? Shall we continue exploring to see which insights we can take back home with us?
