But he doesn’t LOOK Latin!!

I decided to “culturally enrich” Isaac today by taking him to Latin Fest in Washington Park. We did a lot of wandering around, listening to the bands…especially the salsa one that was playing…and I came VERY close to entering the Salsa contest. Why didn’t I? No partner, and my family (my mom and dad) have absolutely no rythym.

So, we were all kind of hungry, and we were wandering around the vendors, and there was a line up of these great Latin foods! I was in absolute heaven…and my mom, being the semi clueless one said “You’re going to have to tell me what’s good.” Ummm. Ok.

I steered them to this Peruvian booth. Not a bad line (there were lines that extended 4-5 booths long…) and the food smelled out of this world. So, Mom gets an order of fried plantains, and I get an empanada and an order of fried plantains (My demand upon going to Latin fest…plantains and empanadas) So, I’m encouraging my family to try the stuff, and Isaac didn’t need much encouragement…as he was slamming back the plantains and parts of my empanada. So, My parents finally kowtowed to my “you gotta try this” and took bites…and declared it wonderful (It was!!).

Being very light and big blue eyes, Isaac stood out like a sore thumb among all of the dark Latins there. Although he may not look Latin…he fits in well. he loves the music, the food, everything. Come on, this kid fights me for things like my empanada and my plantains.

If that’s not a Latin, I don’t know what is.
