In that particular case, he/she was talking about California There are no large Chinese communities in Colombia that I'm aware of, and it's not like we care here in the USA. Don't Californians call California "Cali" also?

Californians never call our beloved state Cali. Do you ever call your state Flori or how about Flor? Maybe Flo would work for you.

We do have plenty of want to be Californians that call it Cali.

I know what state was being refenced, just posting a fun responce. If you were to visit the California forums you would see that all of us prefer calling the state California.

Southeast Asian right here in Homestead farming the guava for USA. I think this may be more re-iteration but I'll agree many Asians aren't down here mainly in South Florida because there was never really a settlement from the older generation. I used to live in Philly and Southern Cali (California) where there is a more concentrated community of Asians.

There is actually quite a few Asians out here in Homestead you just gotta look real hard and being a farmer down here I know plenty of Thai, Cambodian, Laos, Vietnamese, and Chinese peeps that do farming as well.

On occasion my family and I would travel as far as Jacksonville and St. Petersburg to attend holiday events to meet and hang out with other Asians.

SOON2BNSURPRISE lol do you know Biggie smalls and LL cool j's song - "Going back to Cali" ?

I saw three Chinese at the farmer's market in Homestead yesteday, not including my wife.
I usually see one East-Asian (Oriental) every two or three days, not counting work where about 40% are Chinese.

Where are those Asians in Homestead and do they sell their Guava? Such a great fruit, but ridiculously expensive at the supermarkets. Now that I think about it, I know an Asian that farms some tropical fruit up there at a friend's house. It seems they are into farming exotic fruits.

I personally love to call it Flo Rida (pronounced Flow ˈraɪdə) like the Hip Hop singer, because it truly represents our amazing rich and diverse culture. Flo sounds great too, like the Progressive commercials woman(and she likes Tacos)
