LIFE, ZÜRICH, CH

Caliente

July 8, 2015
Bite+my+fashion_blogger_zurich_latina_culture

You may or may not realize that Switzerland has a large and diverse population for such a small landlocked country;  there is always something going on. Over the weekend we witnessed the International Society for Krishna Consciousness aka Hare Krishnas chanting and saw all walks of life participating in different activities. I love people watching and I pay close attention to the diversity, sometimes you don’t see a lot of diversity when you stay in one place but diversity looks different everywhere you travel.

Years back when I first moved to Hawaii I didn’t recognize a lot of the vast diversity because I was so used to defining diversity in Black and White, but I learned to recognized the diversity around me and have life long friends from backgrounds including Hawaiian, Japanese, Filipino and many more. Ethnic minorities account for 75 percent of Hawaii’s population. Asians make up 55 percent, the largest percentage in the USA not to forget Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders are 21 percent of the state’s population. This experience taught me to seek diversity everywhere I travel and helped me lean about other cultures.
The best thing to do when traveling is to make an effort to attend cultural events (and eat the food!). This weekend I went to Caliente, a huge latino festival that was attended by approximately 350,000 people. Everyone from Mexico to the Dominican Republic all the way to Cuba and many more attended. There is a large Latin American and Spanish population in Switzerland. There was Caipoera Martial Arts as Salsa music filled the air. Street vendors served Mojitos and Cuba Libre’s with nachos and it was a lot of fun!

As the heat wave continued through the weekend I kept it simple in a color block bandage body-con skirt, black crop top and gladiator shoes!
