John and Juan

"John and Juan" is a lively romp through the history of the Golden State.  John, a native Californian,  learns from the immigrant Juan about the State's Hispanic heritage, including early Spanish explorers, the original settlers of El Pueblo de Los Angeles, and  Father Junipero Serra, the Chumash indians, and the missions along El Camino Real...and John shares with Juan the excitement of the Gold Rush. 

In humorous scenes, great hisoric moments are reenacted with tongue in cheek (a can of spam somehow makes its way into the story!) as John and Juan learn they share a common heritage: 'Whoopi Ti YI Yo'  meets 'Cielto Lindo' as they sing their favorite cowboy/vaqero songs and forge a friendship celebrating the best of both cultures.
