Nestled between Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua in Central America sits the Republic of Honduras, famous for its rich natural resources, textiles, and one valued export known to the AP family – Cesar Reyes.
Finding a home in New Orleans after leaving his native country, Cesar relocated from the “Big Easy” to the Lone Star State in the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Making the most of his westward move, he was hired at AP a little more than a year ago and works as a student coordinator.
The avid Dallas Cowboys fan with a pallet for California club sandwiches (and crickets?) admits Texas has changed him some.
“I wasn’t into football,” said Cesar, from soccer-crazed South America. “Not until I moved to Texas.”
A few questions for Cesar Reyes, a Times featured employee for June:
- If you could learn to do anything, supernatural included, what would it be? I would learn to scuba dive
- If you could win a life-time supply of anything what would you want it to be? Money
- What would you name the autobiography of your life? I honestly don’t know what I would name my autobiography. I’m a horrible writer
- What is the strangest food you have ever eaten? Crickets
- If you were stranded on a desert island, what one sandwich would you choose? California Club from Paradise Café
- If you could witness any event past, present or future, what would it be? I would like to witness the testing of the atomic bomb
