When I Get Home, I’ll Make Carne Asada

Antonio Villalvazo

I’m from Guadalajara, Jalisco, México. I moved to L.A. in September. I like it a lot here, but I’m going back home next month to my wife and my kids.

I take Metro everywhere, during the week for work and on weekends to go out for dinner. I find my commute very relaxing. I get to do some of the things I enjoy the most: walk, bike, and listen to music. I don’t speak English very well, so I usually just keep to myself and listen to music.

Today I’m thinking about dinner. When I get home, I’ll get started on making carne asada with my cousin’s family.
