Five years ago, I was a Gang Prosecutor in the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office. One winter night, I decided to try an experiment: Could I learn Spanish from watching a telenovela? Five years later, I left my job and Chicago, to move to Mexico City, to write the telenovela of my dreams. I don’t understand Spanish or The Metric System. Just like in a great telenovela,, anything can happen... Stay tuned!
I’m a lifelong Chicagoan who recently moved to Mexico City, where I make plenty of mistakes every day! When a police sergeant pointed out my most recent mistake, I couldn’t get out of there fast enough! But then I realized, I’m not the only person making Mistakes in Mexico! And I felt much better about myself!
Mistakes and hijinx abound at “The Mall Of Iron” when I am directed into a co-ed bathroom. And I’d also like to know the Kleenex budget for the telenovela “Mi Pecado.” And why the family in the movie “Roma” had a dog.
Tonight I want to tell you about my favorite street in Mexico City (Amsterdam, and not for the reason you think!) And why even though it goes in a complete circle I still get lost because I’m never sure where to get off!
