Q: What kind of music do you hear in Mexico? Do
you like it? If you play an instrament, what kind? I play the cello! – Kim, Washington
Tito: Dear Kim, In Mexico we hear all kinds of music, but typical Mexican
music is Ranchera songs that are played mostly with the guitar. Have you ever seen Mariachis? They are
a group of three men who dress up in very fancy costumes and sing with their guitars. It’s really
fun music—I like it a lot. I don’t play an instrument now, but I would like to play the drums
like my cousin Miguel.

Tito: Dear Rosa, Wow! It must have been hard for you when you first came. But it sounds
like you are doing OK in English! Yeah! Yes, it was hard for me when we moved because we were leaving
the place where I was born and also leaving all my friends. It was a little different for me because
I had my cousins Maya and Miguel in America and they spoke English, and I watched a lot of TV in English
back home! Maya, Miguel, and all my friends and family help me!
