MobileWest has found its new home between four mountain ranges, among thousands of cacti, and just north of the border in downtown Tucson. We are parked in front of the historic courthouse and next to the main library. This little square is busy during the day and lit up by night. We have been welcomed here by many people that stop by the booth to ask questions, share their stories, or tell us their favorite place to get delicious local foods. We have had several interviews in one of the common languages of the Southwest, Spanglish. Sentence to sentence, word to word, English and Spanish jump back and forth. In this city of interwoven language and history, MobileWest is looking forward to hearing many more stories, in the many languages and voices of the Southwest.
