Julio traveled with his family from Manifee, California, to see his parents. His parents came from Tepic, Nayarit and Julio had not seen them for 13 years. It was very hard for him to say goodbye without being able to embrace them.

Julio viajo con su familia desde Manifee, California a ver a sus papas. Sus padres vinieron desde Tepic, Nayarit y ellos tenían 13 años de no verse. Fue muy difícil para ellos decirse adiós sin ni siquiera poderse abrazar.
