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.

These words from my guest in this Episode, Debra Ehrhardt, solo performer and native of Jamaica:

"Your saying 'no' to me is just a way of my saying, ok, how can I get 'yes'?"

"In America, there is no class system; they see you as you are."

"When a man is involved in a child's life, it makes such a difference."

"People who travel are so much more interesting than those who stay in their tiny little city."
