Theme Day-Where Am I?

Now, if not in St. Paul, where am I??!! NO! I'm not in Mexico. I AM in St. Paul where many Mexican and Central American families have lived for generations in a neighborhood that retains much of the Hispanic-speaking cultures. Great place to eat and buy groceries; that is, if you like Mexican food!!

  1. Hurray, I'm the first in St Paul. And I must say I was pretty sure you were taking us down to southern Califormia. You tricked me!

    Many thanks for your visits to my blog over the past few days. Sorry I wasn't able to reciprocate, I have been away in Noumea for almost a week and just catching up today.

    In the process forgot to enrol for the theme day but am participating anyway. Cheers!

  2. Wow Kate, great photos! Looking at your photos I truly thought they were from your time in Mazatlan.

  3. I know exactly where this is, I wont spoil the fun though....

  4. You are so early! When we posted ours, you must be already there to waiting. Did you? Thanks for comment! Love your window shot here.

  5. that was tricky! You got me spinningmy head haha - nice work on another composition ;)
    I did not know that about the Mexicans in St. Paul - very interesting

  6. You are home at last!

  7. Good collection of pics Kate!

  8. I thought you were in Mexico, for sure!

    Well I would have guessed, Mexico, anyway. It looks like Mexico or possibly New Mexico, or maybe even Arizona, and could be Texas. Remember Brownsville. Nice photo idea Kate.

    My Theme Day is of a city unto itself, with its own zip code, and a portrait of the "Peashooter" at the National Museum of the United States Air Force. Hope you like flying.

  10. Hi Kate! Your exchange looks even more Mexican than mine, but then we don't have a large Hispanic population, although the owners of our El Ranchero Restaurant are Hispanic. That's why the food is so good!
    Nice, colorful photo!

  11. Oh that's St Paul-Mexico!
    St Me-Pa-xi-aul-co! hahaha ;)

  12. You're in right Kate about your invite to visit other cities that partecipate to the monthly theme. I also have to say that loving to travel and to learn about foreign custom and culture I learned a lot in this fourth months I'm on DP. I'll never quit to thank Erich for this.

  13. LOL Aren't you the sneaky one!

    So cool! Great twist on the topic. St. Paul is quite cosmopolitan!

  15. Great collage and what, not in Mexico! Love those tiles.

  16. Your doppleganger gets around...first Mazatlan, and now here! Hmmmm....

    Let's eat some fattening Mexican food together someday, eh? Throw in a few tequilas while we're at it...a good plan!

  17. Just came from Mexico, where are you now?

    Check out my theme day pic:
    I got in late to the list.

    Have a great day!!!

    hehehe..the amigo looks like charlie brown!

  19. Looks like a nice restaurant.

  20. it is good to know there are still ethnic neighborhoods in some of the larger cities. I know California has them...nice to know other cities do also.

    And Cinco De Mayo is just around the corner.

  22. I think that the statue with the sombrero (sp?) started life as a Charlie Brown character. It looks just like Linus with a multi-colored blanket. Mmmm. Mexican food.

    I love the Madonna photo.

  23. I missed seeing this until late on 5/1... and knew instantly. Good job fooling everyone!

  24. A very familiar images from Mexico, great collage!

  25. Looks so "real", that it makes me miss those smoke-dried chipotle chilis and a really good guacamole. Thank goodness no tequila in the house to drown my sorrow with a "Muddy" (even though the Austrian company Riedel created the official Margarita glass, I'm no Margarita girl, I prefer the pinaple to the lime).


Thanks for visiting my blog; I appreciate it! Come back often!!
