I kind of stand out here. In a sea of Mexicans (and many white Americans and Europeans), I am decidedly other.
So I often get the question “De donde eres?” or “De donde vienes?”
Where do I come from? I could take a day to answer that question. But, for now, let’s look at the most popular guesses I get:
Cuba: > 10 times
Brazil: < 5 times
Jamaica: 2 times
Africa: 1 time
The United States: 0
Oh, the irony.
