  1. Oh my, how I'd love to be able to fly over to New York to attend some of these events! Thank you, Claudio, for sending out this impressive amount of information. At least I can click on links and learn a little more each day about what is being done to promote Latino and L.A. cultural heritage. Wonderful work! Sylvia
