I love March for many reasons. In Washington DC, where I am currently based, the sun comes back this month and the cherry trees gift their blossoms after a long gray winter. And more importantly, I love this month because we honor Women's History Month.

As a subscriber, in March you will get two issues of Querida Viajera's newsletter, where we will highlight the contributions of Latinx women in the U.S., in Latin America and in the Caribbean.

As this is only our second issue, I would really appreciate any comments you have to improve this newsletter. And for those of you who just subscribed, Querida Viajera is a feminist travel project with a newsletter that celebrates and brings you closer to Latinx and Latin America's artists, cultures, creatives and destinations.

Con amor,
Andrea Arzaba 

This weekend we are traveling to...

🇩🇴 Dominican Republic with Carolina Contreras, aka Miss Rizos, a woman that opened one of the first natural hair salons in Santo Domingo and started a hair revolution.

🇲🇽 Mexico with photographer Graciela Iturbide, as we listen to this interview in Spanish and take a journey into the life of a genuine photographic icon. If you do not know her work, you can see it here.

🇧🇷 Brazil with chef Dona Suzana, as we read about her restaurant, which is one of Bahia's hidden treasures. You can also watch the episode she starred at Street Food Latin America on Netflix.

🇵🇷 Puerto Rico with writer Rosario Ferré. If you love short stories, get your cup of coffee or tea ready, and enjoy "The Poisoned Tale". You can read it in Spanish here and in English here.

🇦🇷 Argentina with a group of dancers that are trying to make tango less about traditional gender roles, and rooting out sexual harassment in the community.

🇨🇴🇺🇸 New York and Colombia with entrepreneur Jennifer Velasquez, who creates tools that help you cultivate a practice of self-love. Check them out!

🇲🇽🇺🇸 Southern Texas and Mexico with journalist Marcia Garcia, as we listen to an intimate portrait of Mexican-American singer Selena and her lasting legacy. 

Women's History Month Destination: Havana, Cuba
