An orthodox (?) Jew and a black kid with gold teeth having a 30 minute conversation on the platform about philosophical approaches to education in different cultures. It was pretty cool to eavesdrop on them. In my neighborhood there is diversity but groups mostly stick to themselves-the Jews, Dominicans and Arabs. I wish we mingled more. #diversity#metronorth#mta#meltingpot#crossculture#community
Birthday dinner at the famed, Brasserie L'Est owned by the late french chef Paul Bocuse. It's famous for it's travel themed interiors with a small electric train going around (3rd photo, blurry I know. Lol) and is located at an old train station in Brotteaux, Lyon 🚂

Every group , and each of individual is unique in their own right. As a organizational psychologist, a facilitator and an educator - I am humbled by the learning capacity of these postgraduate students when all I needed was to provide the environment and some guidance - the rest is Magic! This group too touched my heart and we came together to share a final presentation, a final sharing , and a potluck lunch of multi cultural food that tingled all our palates as we come to the end of our Cross Cultural Management Module. May this young minds be successful in all their endeavors!
Happy Moon Festival! The traditional Cantonese style mooncake has a salted duck egg yolk in the middle of sweet lotus paste. I remember growing up, mom used to cut up mooncakes for us to share and my sibling and I always argued over which piece we get because I wanted the piece with the most egg yolk. Many moons later, although I prefer other types of mooncake, each year on Moon Festival, I still get one mooncake with an egg yolk in it and cut it up to share with my own family. The difference is, now I alway end up with the whole egg yolk to myself because nobody else likes the salted egg yolk. Win win. .
Congratulations Cross Culture Kombucha on your grand opening! Loved celebrating with you last week! It's been so exciting to see how far you've come, and Bingley Design is thrilled to be a part of your journey! Here's to you! 😀 @crossculturekombucha
Any idea what a TCK is? TCK stands for Third Culture Kid. It’s a term which was developed to define children who were born and raised with two or more cultures, either because of their parents’ cultural background or just because they grew up in different lands. Hence, TCKs have difficulty identifying with only one culture. I myself am a Third Culture Kid. I’m half Dutch, half Mexican. My father is Mexican and my Mother is Dutch. I grew up in both countries and therefore I learned to love and appreciate everything related to my two cultures; the language, traditions, food... you name it. And although the Netherlands is my home in heart I will always feel a strong connection to my “latina” side.
Today I’ve added a new culture to my repertoire. Currently living in Brazil, I’ve been excited to learn everything about this fascinating culture. And hopefully in a few year’s I’ll be raising my own pack of TCKs 😉 brazi-mexi-dutch? 🙈😆#tck#thirdculturekid#language#crossculture#english#inglês#languagecoach#teachersofinstagram#aprenderingles#ensinaringles#elearning#aulasdeingles
I got heckled last night. It was fun. Only 5 more chances to heckle me at Enlighten Me a Little. That's my lover and kids in the snap. Guess who?
6pm, Pilgrim Bar, Fed Square.

a new adventure // while we were living in San Diego we came across these keys on a walk in our neighborhood. “ Hotel Nelson, room 311, Baja California Mexico” We thought it was a sure sign we were destined to move to Tijuana but the timing was off. We have been working in Baja for the past 9 years and it is one of the places we like to call home. And now we really get to.
In December we will be moving to Baja California as we work alongside @amorministries and look for more clients in San Diego. We love this home (funny enough house number 311) Tyler has given us. This past year has felt like a year of rest in the piney woods. Though if you know us you know we can’t stay in one place for too long. We want to show our children the world, cultures, and hopefully help them with the gift of being bilingual.
So get ready West Coast, we are headed that way!
