Chinatown/ Adams Morgan/ U Street Shaw

We went to these places with checking lists what we could find there. In Chinatown, I found it is similar to Japanese one. I was pleased at seeing the Starbacks written in Chinese.
In Adams Morgan and U Street Shaw, I heard Spanish a lot and realized Spanish is the second language in U.S. As I only have been to D.C., I could see the new aspects of America. It was interesting. I also enjoyed the time at café.

Spanish is starting to become very important to the U.S.. I think I've heard once about a movement to make it the second official language, although I don't know if that'll actually work out.

Spanish is indeed becoming more and more common in the US. Many of the Hispanics in the DC area are from Central America. In places like Los Angeles, they come mostly from Mexico. In Texas and New Mexico, there are Hispanic families that have lived in the same place since those states were part of Mexico. They didn't move, but the border did!

I want to know more about what breaks my typical images of America.

28 million speakers of Spanish in the US now. That's over 10% of the population. Some people find it worrying, but I like Spanish. I like Mexican food too.
