Lola Sarur Zanatta came to Boulder from Veracruz, Mexico, in 1996. She came here to take a job doing childcare for a family, but now works as a bilingual secretary in an area elementary school. She speaks about the beauty of Mexico, the friendliness of the people, and the things she misses about her country of origin, such as her extended family, the food, and—sometimes—the subtropical climate. But she also lauds the beauty of Boulder, the excellent library system, the cleanliness and orderliness of the city, and the many friends she has made here. After nearly twenty years here, she considers Boulder her home.
