A trip to Ciuadad Juarez, Mexico - origin of the burrito. We hear the legend of an entreprenuiral man, his donkey, and a tale of two cities. We also talk to Emily Bonderer-Cruz, who was featured on This American Life a few years ago for her radio diary "The Real Housewife of Ciudad Juarez." Since that piece was first aired, much has changed, leaving her and her husband Gordo unsure of what their future holds.
