My father lived in Galicia, a small city in northern Spain. His life was very frugal, living with his parents and his sister. Growing up on a farm, my father had a lot of chores. In school, he always studied hard and kept good grades. However, at a later age, my father would move to America, in search of a better life. He worked even harder when in America and later took over a restaurant in New York still open to this day. Also known fact, the restaurant was open in 1959, making it the oldest Mexican restaurant in New York.

Place(s): Galicia
Year: 1983
