On Monday I rode the bus to south Boulder to meet with my ESL student. We practiced reading comprehension and reading for context. He told me that he is from Zacatecas, Mexico. Zacatecas is a the central state in Mexico. He boasted that the facades on some of the buildings are so beautiful that they belong to humanity.
What a wonderful way to define beauty: that which belongs to humanity.
He also told me that most of the immigrants in Boulder are from Zacatecas, Mexico.
Tonight I tested the theory by asking my other ESL class. Yes, they are all from Zacatecas.
What is the Zacatecas connection with Boulder?
