Silicon Valley De-Bug • Video • Jesus Medina, Stephanie Flores • July 9, 2012

Chinese immigrants Jimmy and Lucy share their tale of coming to America with next to nothing, how they were taught to make burritos from Mexican immigrants, and their “second home” Peking House Restaurant, where they serve the San Jose community — from longtime regular costumers to homeless in the area. Video produced by Stephanie Flores and Jesus Medina.
This project is a part of a larger multimedia series called “Arriving and Becoming” chronicling the loves and experiences of immigrant elders in Silicon Valley. To see more go to:
