• dear Adam you should answer my friend request and also is nice of you to interview your father and how he talk about his home land was great

  • One of the most difficult things I lost through migrating was part of my family, and getting to see my cousins in person. Even though I haven’t lost contact completely, it doesn’t feel the same way as being with

    • Hi Alberto,
      I really enjoyed reading your piece. I like how you start out by talking about what you lost by immigrating to the US. Especially when it comes to distance and relationships with family is always hard. My favorite line was the one about how your Grandmother’s voice reminds you of the past. For me its always certain smells that brings back memories. I found your optimism refreshing, you would have all the excuse in the world to be angry, but instead you found the bright side of things. Can’t wait to see what you write next.

    • Dear Alberto
      I am so excited about your podcast that stood out for me was.”Most importantly I miss my Grandmother and the idiosyncrasy of her voice when she talks” that’s so emotion because I know how to feel like leaving your grandmother behind. One aspect of your podcast that stood out for me was “ I also lost the tropical summer and the fun times that I had through the years”. I think this is sad because he miss his home country and he missed hang out with his family. Your podcast reminds me of something that happen to me. One time I when I immigrated from yemen to the u.s it wasn’t fun anymore because i didn’t know anyone and it was sad because back home i used to know everyone. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next time, because it makes me feel that i could learn about your home land or your life.
