Friends Passing Through

Chico and the Postman

Katie-Meleel Nodjimbadem is a Chadian-American journalist with a focus on immigration.  A native of El-Paso, Texas and soon to be graduate of Northwestern’s School of Journalism, she also happens to be Auntie Katie to my children.  It’s been a pleasure watch Katie grow into the beautiful, fearless, multi-facteted woman.  Traveling through France by herself in college and now with an internship at Texas Monthly, Katie is using her background to bring perspective to our colorful world. Katie’s piece Chico and the Postman Mail Order Tacos will be appearing in the print edition of Texas Monthly.

If this gets you hungry for original Tex-Mex check out the latest Texas Monthly review of DFW Tacos.
