Ramón: I Know Almost Everybody

casa-latina

I think I know almost everybody here at Casa Latina, but if I want to point out the real friends, it’s three or four. We all know each other, we all share the space, but each one has their own group. I think you end up going to those with whom there’s more trust or where you have more things to share. But I think everybody shares a beer.

Ramón: Political Convenience

Ramon leaning against brick wall

Migrants are what the politicians take and use when they find it convenient, and when it’s not convenient they kick us out. So the Republicans are like the wind: they move when it’s convenient for them and it goes back and forth, and same thing with the Democrats. I don’t understand much of that. I would like to understand it better. I don’t need the visa or citizenship. If they gave it to me for next week then I would go but if they offer it and it’s going to take three years or six years then by the time I get it maybe it’ll be to enter legally back into Mexico.

Ramón: Computer Classes

Laptop

How did you learn to use the computer?
I started to come here to Casa Latina to the computer classes. Here they give you the very basics: how to use email, how to open an account, and how to use it. I learned those basic things here. I would like to learn how to repair cell phones or tablets because there’s a lot of work I can no longer do because I don’t have the strength. But my mind could do other jobs… I dream of doing something like repairing computers. I want to learn other things related to technology.

Ramón: I'm Okay Here

Ramon

Why am I here? It’s because at my age in Mexico it’s a lot more difficult to find a job because there is a lot of youth. And here even if you are over 60 and you’re retired and they don’t have a full time job, maybe you can still work. And in Mexico if you go to look for a job and one is younger than me, the other person is the one who is going to get the job. I’m okay here, it’s not that I want to stay but I’m okay. I would like to learn some more technology or learn some skill so that if I go there I’m not just depending on anybody.

Ramón: Cactus

I’m learning photography. This is a picture of a landscape with a cactus by a guy who is a writer from my homeland, from Jalisco.

Estoy aprendiendo fotografía. Esta foto es de un paisaje con un cactus, tomada por un un hombre que es escritor allá en mi tierra, en Jalisco.

Ramón: Why am I here?

Why am I here?...It’s because at my age in Mexico it’s a lot more difficult to find a job because there is a lot of youth. And here even if I am old, maybe not full time but you can still work. In Mexico if you go to look for a job and one is younger than me the other person is the one who is going to get the job. Here it is true as well but less. 

Ramón: Can’t Live Without [Steve] Jobs

photo of a cartoon

Ramón This cartoon shows homeless people who live on the street but they are not as poor as they are supposed to be. They have their laptop, they write on their tablets. And here it says “Save our Jobs” but this is really about Steve Jobs, not about work. I don’t have any money but I like technology and they also like technology. I know how to use technology, even if you don’t understand it all, and it’s a really good tool. You don’t really need to know what is behind it. Just use it like any other tool…
