Venezuelans Call Houston Suburb ‘Katy-zuela’

An immigrant to Houston from Venezuela talks about her experiences here.


We meet Houstonian Mariana Torrealba-Prado, who is originally from Venezuela. She says there are so many Venezuelans in the Katy area they call it “Katy-zuela.”

She talks about the differences between culture in Houston and her native country and talks about what she loves — and doesn’t love — about life here.
