When it’s rainy and it’s still hot in Mexico, you might be tempted to go swimming, kayaking, biking or hiking in Pismo Beach National Park.
The sun’s shining and the sea is calm.
But the water is not always as clear as it used to be.
For many years, it was an impromptu sanctuary for migrants and refugees who were unable to escape the horrors of Mexico’s northern border.
Now, thanks to a $4.7 million gift from the U.S. and Mexico, Pismo has a new sanctuary, and its future is bright.
But while it’s home to a diverse group of visitors, the park also has a lot to offer the visitors that frequent the beach and other locales along the Mexican-U.
Here are the stories behind Pismo beach’s most iconic attractions.
Pismo’s famous Pismo and Pismo Bay The park’s namesake is Pismo, which means “sea” in Spanish.
Its namesake, as you may know, is the watery beach on which the Mexican national anthem is sung, as it is in Pisco, the capital of Guerrero, which lies on the border with the U-S.
Mexico’s border is at the northernmost point in the park.
But in recent years, a new community has emerged.
The Pismo San Pedro de las Casas (SSP) is a newly formed community of people that live along the border.
Some of them are refugees and others are people who have been living in the U.-S.
illegally for years.
In 2014, the U:S.
government sent a team to Pismo to assist in the reconstruction of the San Pedro.
The SSP is now home to roughly 500 people.
They live in the old San Pedro, but they are living off of the land now, as they have access to the Pismo beaches.
The new community is a mix of people from different cultures.
It includes Pismo locals, migrants from other parts of Mexico and refugees from the south of Mexico.
Many of them have found refuge at Pismo.
Many are married to other migrants from the region.
Pisco is also home to the U, a group of migrants who have spent decades in the United States and are now resettled in the area.
They include U-DREAMers, undocumented immigrants who came to the United State as children, and people who arrived in the country illegally during the height of the drug war in the 1980s.
These migrants were brought to Pisco by the Border Patrol, who were forced to let them stay in the San Fernando Valley during the drug wars.
Now they are looking for work in the tourism industry.
But for some, the economic opportunity is not as appealing as the water.
One group of refugees who fled violence in Central America to the southwest in the 1990s is seeking work as a truck driver.
Another group of U-drama refugees from Guatemala has found work as an interior designer in the Mexican capital.
Both groups have found ways to adapt to life in the new community.
“There is no electricity in the summer, but we have a water tank, a water heater and we have some electric lighting,” says Maria Mireles, a U-M student from Guatemala.
“And we have to get used to the smell of salt, which is very nice.
But we have no electricity and no water.”
For the majority of the year, there are two different streams of refugees in Pisca: the Pisco refugees and the Piscanos.
The refugees live in makeshift camps in the Pico San Fernando, in which they receive medical care and are fed from a communal trough that is also used by the U of M. The U:s teams have come to help in many ways.
They provide shelter for people from the refugee camps.
They help organize the community’s activities.
They teach the local community about the border and provide the U with information about the local economy.
The goal is to provide a safe place for the U’s community to live, but it’s not a safe haven.
And there are some challenges that are still ahead.
For example, the Pista San Pedro has an extremely high rate of sexual assault.
It has been reported that at least four women have been raped during their time at the beach, and at least two of them died from the assault.
There is also a large number of refugees that have been expelled from the area and forced to leave the community.
Mirellas and other U-migrants have been working on a new social media site called Tiempo, which was designed to assist the refugees and provide them with information and support.
Mere days after the U/M team visited the community, it began receiving emails from people who were looking for information about Pismo itself.
“We received about 15 emails a day,” Mirella says.
