#ThrowbackThursday NY World’s Fair with My Sis

I remember the World’s Fair like it was yesterday! We went a few times since we lived close by back then. I loved the It’s a Small World exhibit that eventually made its way to the Disney theme parks. This is a photo of my sister and me at the fair. We were all ready for the sun with our cowboy hats! My sister was already shooting up to be taller than me. Sigh.

Some people don’t think that my sis and I look alike, but I think in this photo you can see that our faces are very similar. Especially the eye scrunch. We both have light colored eyes and they are more sensitive to the sun.

Thoughtful Thursday – Sisters

I mentioned a few weeks ago that I’ve got a new blogging gig over at PowerfulLatinas.com and this month’s theme at Powerful Latinas is sisters – La Hermana.

We’ve got blood sisters and soul sisters, but as women, sisters play a powerful role in our lives. Take a moment to stop by Powerful Latinas and also visit me there for more on the importance of sisters in our lives. Drop by on November 26th to hear more about sisters, family and a wonderful novel by my friend and fellow author Julia Amanta – EVENINGS AT THE ARGENTINE CLUB. Julia has graciously offered a copy of her book as a giveaway, but remember, that’s on November 26th (and continuing through the Thanksgiving weekend).

Here is a photo of my little sister and me! It was taken in Nicaragua after we had left Cuba and were trying to meet up with my parents in the United States. My poor grandparents were hauling us all around Latin America for quite some time thanks to Castro. My mom had to leave us when my little sister was only six months old. I don’t know how she had the courage to do it. I’m not sure I could have.


This is a picture of my sis and me now (I think she caught up to heightwise, don’t you think? LOL!)
