Casusol is currently working in an ongoing project, About Passion focuses on regional colloquialisms, words and phrases - such as the various ways passion fruit is commonly known in Latin America (e.g. 'Pacha', 'Maracuya', 'Parchita') to talk about current cultural intersections in Hispanic communities in the US.
