I am a resident in Calexico. I was born and raised in the Imperial Valley. I read your article in the Sunday paper about talk of creating and building a Chinatown here in Calexico.
All these years I've been reading the paper, I have never heard of a better idea in my life. What took you so long? What took the people of Calexico, especially our Chinese neighbors, so long?
I am so for this idea. It's been the best thing I've read so far in Imperial Valley Press since I can remember picking up the newspaper.
I come from Chinese heritage and culture even though I am also half Hispanic. My father is Chinese and my mother is Mexican. My older brothers hold a lot of our Chinese culture in the family as well as in the Calexico temple located at the Calexico Martial Arts Academy on Imperial Avenue in Calexico.
