¡Vamonos a Mexico!

¡Vamonos a Mexico!
 

On today’s special Sound Kitchen, Susan takes you to Paris’s Latin America House for a taste of George Jackson de Llano’s photographs of the Nahua rain dances in Guerrero, Mexico. Click on that little “Listen” arrow above, and travel along!

Hello everyone!

Surprise! Today you’ll hear a special Sound Kitchen about rain dances in Mexico. I hope you enjoy it.

Be sure and tune in again next week – same time, same place – for the answer to the question about the Greek Prime Minister’s surprise.

George Jackson de Llano

In the meantime, don’t forget, I’m still collecting your essays! Write in about your community heroes – the people in your community who are quietly working to make the world a better place, in whatever way they can. I am still looking for your “This I Believe” essays, too. Tell us about the principles that guide your life … what you have found to be true from your very own personal experience. Or write in with your most memorable moment, and/or your proudest achievement.

Send your mini book reviews, your musical requests, your secret "guilty" pleasure (mine's chocolate!), your proverbs, your tricks for remembering things, descriptions of the local festivals you participate in, or just your general all-around thoughts to:
thesoundkitchen@rfi.fr

Include a phone number, if you can. I’d like to call you and put you on-the-air … and send you a thank-you gift for participating.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

All the best,

Susan
