My beautiful mom on the left, and yours truly on the right. This Photo was taken in Miami, perhaps 5-6 years after we came to this wonderful(?) city of Miami in 1974. If I knew then what I know now, I would have insisted on moving to Greece. Although mom always speaks very highly of Spain (she spent 4 years there). From what I've heard, relatives was already here in the United Sates and egging my family to move here.
Mom struggled to learn English, and even worse. I picked it up quickly, obviously due to my young age and an undeniable knack for picking up langauges.
