American melting pot

Monday, October 03, 2016

One of the things that makes US cities especially exciting are the cultural influences of our immigrants. Each time an ethnic group moves into a neighborhood, they add their food, music, and heritage to those who came before.

A good example here in southeastern Los Angeles County is the city of Artesia. Named for its abundant underground waters by its original Dutch and Portuguese settlers, the city has since become a popular destination for immigrants from India—and is well known locally for its fantastic Indian food. (Here’s an article with more about that: http://ow.ly/msvZ300fwFv.)

Like the rest of us here in Los Angeles county, folks in Artesia know that there’s strength in cultural diversity. Learn more about Artesia at http://ow.ly/Ym68300fw7R.
