ET019 - End of Season, 1 with a "Tear"

By Eric Trules

Here it is... one of kind.... a travel story not about... me! Along with excerpts from Season 1, and final travelogue. "Tear" is about a 15 year old Chicano boy named Alejandro Chavez, my "mentee", and the bus trip he took across the US-Tijuana border in 1995. Alex, as he like to be called, told me this story, and I've tried to capture it here. I think it's a love story about the distance between cultures and countries, in our modern age of... President Trump and all the challeges of immigration. I also think it's a bitter-sweet and appropriate ending to the End of Season 1 on the  "e-travels with e. trules" podcast.
