For the Martinez family it is a homecoming for the ancestors of Antoine Martinez came from the province of Murcia. From 1951 to 1960, Antoine Martinez and Alice and their two children spend their summers in Spain. In deciding to learn Spanish, Alice Martinez-Richter absorbs more of the Hispanic culture.
