An early autumn rain was falling. I waited in the station, looking among the passengers for Filipino faces. Then I went out and turned northward on Los Angeles Street, and suddenly familiar signs on barbershop and restaurants came to view. I felt as though I had discovered a New World. I entered a restuarant and heard the lonely sound of my dialect, the soft staccato of home. I knew at once that I would meet some people I had known in the phillipines." - Carlos Bulosan (America is in the Heart, 1943) City of Los Angeles [Tagalog text] Nayon Ng Mga Diwata Design by Eliseo Art Silva, Eliseo Art & Murals .
