Street Art-Los Amigos

There has been a large viable Mexican community on the west side of St. Paul for several generations. Recently Spanish speaking immigrants from other countries have joined them. It is a delightful neighborhood to visit because of the mercados, restaurantes, and fantastic murals. This group scene is painted on a merchant's window. I'll post more in the future. I have volunteered as an ESL tutor in the Paul and Sheila Wellstone Neighborhood House, a community center that provides a variety of activities for immigrants and neighbors. Love the people there!
