The website about the Asturian-American migration, will publish inside its section about Asturian cider the breaking news of interest from lasidra.as
AsturianUS .org is a website that was born with the aim of to bring together the families and communities of Asturian people who emigrated to Cuba and the United States, share their histories and also extend the knowledge of the Asturian culture.The topics developed in the web go from the literature, language, identity, music and folklore of Asturies, to the politics, gastronomy and of course, cider.
The forum already has more than 2363 registered members, both Asturians and foreigners, who collaborate to share their experiences, histories, news and wisdom, thus bringing Asturies closer for those who had to migrate away and allowing their descendants to maintain the knowledge and culture from the place they feel a strong connection to.
Like lasidra.as, asturianUS.org relies on the effort and selfless work of collaborators, translators and moderators who make it a comfortable, lively and up to date place, as shown by the many entries and readers on its very active forum.Given that cider is our indigenous drink and thus one of the quintessential aspects of our culture, and given our intention of providing information about what’s new in the world of cider –the cider presses, cider bars and cider parties- to those living in Asturies or away from the homeland, and even to their descendants, we are pleased to announce that news from lasidra.as about Asturian cider will be posted periodically in the corresponding section of the web site of our friends.
With this collaboration we hope to develop even greater participation for both communities. We encourage our readers to visit and add to the AsturianUS.org forum, and we want to welcome the members of that forum and encourage them to get to know and enjoy our little place on the internet as well.
