Ana Gabriel - One of us!

On my last Friday in Costa Rica, Wendy took us out to eat tapas at Terra y Mar. While we were enjoying our meal, a flat screen TV tucked into the corner of the restaurant seranaded us with the recorded performances of Los Bukis, The BeeGees and Ana Gabriel. As we chatted about Ana Gabriel's old hits, little did I know that we were talking about one of our very own!



I stumbled upon Ana Gabriel's ethnic make up while poking around Wikipedia about Asian Latinos. A link with her name showed up and it turns out that Ana Gabriel is of Mexican, Japanese and Chinese descent. I'm probably the last person to know this, but I don't care--she's on my top list of Asian Latin Americans.
