From La Burbuja: Dillan

When Dillan Garcia's grandmother moved from Honduras to Los Angeles in the 1970's, she immediately went to MacArthur Park, a known landing place for Central American immigrants.

"When she would talk to people (in MacArthur Park), she would be like, 'Where you from?' 'Oh I'm from Mexico, I'm from Honduras," Dillan says.

And eventually, she remained in the neighborhood and brought her 14 children to the States.

Listen to what happened after the journey here and how Dillan identifies with his Mexican-Honduran backgrounds.
