I am in my second year on the Advisory Board of the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center. I am also in my second year as Chair. The MACC is a beautiful facility on the banks of Lady Bird Lake in downtown Austin at 600 River Street. It is the center piece of the Rainey Street Historic District. The facility was designed and built by CasaBella + Del Campo and Maru and the late Mexican Architect Teodoro Gonzalez de Leon.
Peru, Chile & Easter Island
In June of 2014, my sister Leticia, two of her friends, Norma and Gerry and I traveled to Peru, Santiago, Chile and Easter Island. The first part of our journey was to Peru where we spent 2 days at Machu Pichu, took a bus trip down the Inca Trail and a beautiful train ride through the mountains. From there our trip continued to Santiago, Chile where we had some tremendous meals and then boarded a plane to Easter Island. The trip was fantastic, but only now have I gotten around to share photos and will likely write a bit about the adventure. The following photo album contains lots of random photos from the trip. They aren't in any specific order and there are quite a few and some duplicates. There are 33 pages of pics. If you don't have time to view them all, go to page 22 and start there. I hope you enjoy!
