Paul / United Statesflaf


 

My name is Paul Walker. I'm from the United States and this video is for elllo.org and my question is: what foreign culture has a big influence in your country?

I'm from Southwest, Texas, and of course this area was originally settled by the Spanish, so the Mexican culture has a big influence in this part of the country. This is reflected in all the hispanic names of cities, towns, rivers and other geographical locations such as San Antonio, Texas and the Rio Grande River. There is a lot of hispanic style architecture. In most cities, there's missions, even in the houses, small houses in towns, and also there is the Mexican food which is really popular in this part of the country, and it's given rise to a type of food called Tex-Mex which is a blend of Mexican food and American food and is popular all over America.
