    There was one particular time, I opened the Instagram app on my phone and was casually scrolling down my feed. Out of nowhere, this thought came to mind: my feed is boring. It’s mostly just portraits of people, a food tutorial, some rows of shades of liquid lipsticks, there’s nothing that amazes and captivates me. … <a href="https://culture.affinitymagazine.us/this-four-surrealist-instagram-accounts-will-make-your-feed-looks-magical/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Read

    Photography has been a big part of my life for around four years now; the aspect of freezing a moment in time and capturing it forever will never fail to keep me interested. Recently, my mom purchased some 35mm film for her old film camera that has been sitting on my bookshelf collecting dust.

    Previously, I spoke about my experience when I first arrived to Cuba and the various tourist spots I had the chance to visit. This is going to be a continuation of that but slightly different. The second week I was in Cuba, I spent it with my maternal family members. They lived a bit farther … <a href="https://culture.affinitymagazine.us/12-days-in-cuba-part-2/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Read

    These past two weeks, I have been wandering around Italy with my family. I had the privilege of visiting as many museums, cultural places, and beautiful landscapes as I could find. The rich culture and fascinating timelessness of the country were captivating, and I felt so drawn to the way of life here. It was otherworldly to … <a href="https://culture.affinitymagazine.us/italy-a-photo-series/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Read

    This past summer in July, I spent my last month before going back to school in Mexico visiting family. I remained most of the time in Mexico City with my abuela, aunts and uncles. The other half of the time was spent in a pueblo called Santiago Huajolotitlán in Oaxaca, Mexico visiting more family.

    During my trip to Tucson, Arizona in February, I got a glimpse into the beautiful culture of Native Americans as well as the picturesque landscape of the Sonora Desert.
