Los Estados Unidos: notas y episodios de viaje
In the late 1880s Alberto Lombardo traveled by train and steamboat through much of the United States, noting the natural features of the countryside, the architecture of the cities and towns, and the customs and social behavior of the Americans he encountered. Setting out from Mexico City and traveling to Veracruz, Lombardo began his American journey in Galveston, Texas, and proceeded through Louisiana, Mississippi, Ohio, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, Illinois, Nebraska, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, and California. Along the way he remarked on both the landmarks he visited and those political or social connections which interested him, from the carnival in New Orleans to the Mormons in Salt Lake City, and from the prevalence of public libraries, discovered during a daytrip to Brooklyn, to the treatment of Chinese immigrants in the western states and the astonishing and exotic vitality of San Francisco’s Chinatown.
