Our World Tuesday

April 2015 - Austin TX

The grounds of the Capitol building in Austin are packed with interesting sculptures that I will show in future weeks.

The Tejano monument is a massive 250-ton tribute to Texas’ early Spanish and Mexican explorers, settlers and their descendants.


“Tejano” is a regional variant of Mexican American or Mexicano, akin to Californiano and Nuevo Mexicano.
