Latin American festival in Waltham
Went to the Latin American festival on the Waltham common today. For such an important segment of Waltham's population, Hispanics are practically invisible when one listens to our elected leaders or reads the News-Tribune. Yet probably a few thousand gathered today to meet, eat, and party at the festival. There was some kind of beauty pageant, and music, and all of these incredible foods from Puerto Rico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Mexico, Ecuador, and probably a few other places too -- I wish I hadn't eaten before going, because it would have been great to sample them all!
