"Pedro Lasch in his map and article "Latino/a America" envisions the Americas without any boundaries. He discusses how a map can show traces of immigrants travels. His work explores how globalization enforces boundaries to loosen the flow of capital while preventing movement of people."

"Pedro Lasch en su mapa y artículo, 'Latino/a America,' considera las Américas sin fronteras. Él discute cómo un mapa puede mostrar rastros de los viajes de inmigrantes. Su obra explora como globalización impone limites para aflojar el flujo de capital mientras se prohibe el movimiento de las personas."

2/26/08

Rundown typical Day
past month of March.

 wake up at 7:30
read some  Hebrew Bible, maybe some Greek.
I eat and catch the 59 bus to La Universidad De Belgrano.

I attend classes of Spanish from 9:30am-2:30pm
Mon-Fri.
After class I walk the city
explore and inspect...there is quite a lot.

I went to Iguazu, la provincia de Misiones,
 this past weekend,
 not part of my typical day

the first people to come upon the falls, what were their thoughts?
Holy Columbus surrender your gold!

We also went to Jesuit Ruins in San Ignacio.
They were pretty ruined.

I toured a people.
The Guaraní.
Many live in this region,
Especially in La Provincia Misiones en Argentina.
Specifically, there were only about 850 area.

These days they rely totally on tourism.
 They give tours to people like me.
They sell things to the visitors like me.
 There is a spanish language school
 near the village we went to
It teaches Spanish to them,
 like University of Belgrano teaches Spanish to me

It teaches the Guarani people spanish so they can leave
that area and get work outside of the village.

I now have a video of the Guaraní people singing me a song.
