    When I was about 15, my family and I took a trip to India for my cousin's wedding. Before leaving was really stressful because my parents left a month before my grandfather and I and we were not sure if I would be able to go.

    The turbulence of the plane woke me from my dreamy state. I had been staring out of the plane window for what seemed like days. I did not exactly know what to expect when I stepped onto the ramp that led into the outside world. I was in Mexico City, the capital of my mother’s country, the country...

         I have traded nationalities.  For one week, I tried in vain to become European.      I wandered the plazas of Rome, the alleys of Florence, the canals of Venice, the streets of Milan searching for my inner Italian. I shunned such dastardly American tourist pitfalls of fanny packs, white...
