Nationality understands borders but culture does not. A nation’s border is a fine line defined by walls, fences and checkpoints. The border between cultures is wide. They commingle appearing in art, murals, food, language and dreams.
In the last few years I have visited the U.S./Mexican border 4 times focusing on Nogales Arizona and Nogales Sonora working with various non-profit organizations that aid migrants and foster cultural exchange and goodwill across the border.
In addition I have visited the borderlands of Texas and Tijuana and plan on future trips to the area.
