Me ha encantado tu videoblog, y entiendo tus pensamientos. Hay mucha gente en el mundo que vive entre dos culturas y que tiene una herencia mixta. No veo ningún problema en eso, es posible de amar dos países o dos culturas. Solamente los nacionalistas tienen problemas de entender eso.

A veces, te envidio un poco porque vives en un entorno tan cosmopólito, internacional y abierto al mundo como Nueva York. Me encantaria vivir en un ambiente así. ¡Ojalá que hicieres (?) más videoblogs en el futuro!

A propósito, también tienes raíces puertoriqueños, ¿verdad? Raíces de Borinquen.

eh!, hablas estupendamente, con fluidez y corrección en los tiempos verbales, generos y personas gramaticales y todo eso.
Encuentro muy notable que conserves el sonido 'c' (the lisp ¿no?) casi siempre que toca, porque es algo que no existe fuera de España, y no en toda. Es de suponer que lo aprendiste de tu padre.

La bi-culturalidad en las personas individuales no representa ningún problema, al contrario, mejor para aquel que conoce de cerca dos o mas idiomas y culturas. El problema es cuando toda una sociedad y la
administración y servicios del estado se supone han de ser bilingües (o mas), entonces es habitual el choque de trenes y nunca se llega a un equilibrio satisfactorio para todos. Si además ligado a la cultura/lengua existe un nacionalismo político, entonces la cosa puede salirse de madre cualquier día. Eso pasa aquí sobre todo en periodos electorales.

Valencia parece hoy día la zona mas pujante y dinámica de España si, la otra cara de esta moneda es que ya no debe quedar un metro cuadrado de zona virgen donde no hayan edificado y que autenticos 'capos' de la
corrupción y el tráfico de influencias (algún presi de Diputación provincial p.e.) son reelegidos una y otra vez por muchas denuncias judiciales que tengan e historias escabrosas en que estén implicados.

Gracias Edith. I cringe when I watch it. Que diga, crigeo cuando lo miro Mi madre es de Puerto Rico asi que soy medio borinquen pero no hable español hasta que fui a España en el 73 por un año. Mi acento es bastante mezclado. Aunque naci y vivi en Nueva York, ahora no vivo alli ahora. Vivo afuera de Washington DC (unos 4 y medio km) en Silver Spring, en el estado de Maryland. No como Nueva York pero bastante cosmopolita.
