You never know what interesting facts you may end up discovering while researching the destinations you are planning to travel. I was heading to Mexico about a year ago and as I was doing my research, I decided to be weird and research if there happened to be any of my ethnicity in Mexico. I’m Indian (Arab, not Cherokee as some idiot once asked me as a “clarification” smh)
I googled “Punjabi’s in Mexico” and actually found out there IS an Indian population, specifically from my part of India, Punjab, in Mexico City! The population IS small but have a temple and everything! The article was quite interesting on the journey and immigration from Punjab to Mexico. I was def pleasantly surprised.
Here are some articles on it:
I also find it interesting that there is an Asian population in Jamaica. And Brazilians in Italy, Russians in Southern India. I’ve also seen many Jamaicans in England and I’ve always wondering what brought them out there (well, jobs of course) but they chose England instead of America which is closer with a lot more opportunities, so I still do wonder.
Old fashioned mindsets would never think that a Venezuelan would decide to settle in say China. This day and age one has more opportunities to explore and create a different life in a different country with a different culture. Why not?! It’s a challenge far and few may not choose, but for those who can and have, I will be the first to cheer them on!
