Now he has gotten older and his eyesight is not as good as it used to be so it has gotten used to the traditions from America and does not visit his family often. I learn that Julio Mexican culture and my African American cultures are similar.

I like the fact that a quinceanera is meant to celebrate the girls in the culture and that special part in her life.
