"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."

Leaving Roatán/Preparing for Qatar: 7/27/09

The house was presented to Hans and his Daughters. The presentation was put on by the community. Hans' family and friends set up chairs and sound equipment to sing and have a church service in a Spirit of gratefulness and celebration.
The hospitality was a great way to really soak in the community and feel the determination and power of the Islanders, something I had heard in Hans' speech and stories of the community.

They served us cold juices and fried empanadas while Hans opened up his new doors to allow the community to walk through the house. The gratefulness in the tears of Hans and the joy and excitement of his 2 daughters was congruent with the celebration and service before entering the house.

Hans gave a lovely talk before He unlocked the front door, mentioning the greatness of God and the grace he has learned in life. It was difficult for him to get through the presentation due to the fact that Daisy is now 20 days in the hospital. Hans' took the moment to share how God's plan for the human life is continuously in motion, it is perpetual. There is no time set or limit to who God is and what God's plan is.

Hans will be waiting for his wife to choose the color of paint for the outside and the doors. 

The group left shortly after. Fortunately I bought my plane ticket to return a bit later, so I was able to return the day after to help Hans move in a bed and two dressers. During these movements he shared with me some moments during his Spiritual journey and relationship with God. My souvenir of encouragement was much needed. Daisy should be out of the hospital soon.

As I return I reflect on my time.

On the conflict in the mainland...
