The Downey Legend

Alex Castillo
After remembering his many family trips, Alex Castillo, 12, recalls the memorable moment of being denied by a taxi driver in France a little over seven years ago. “My dad was wearing a Mexico jersey and the taxi driver just said no,” Castillo said. “He didn’t let us go inside his taxi because our team beat his team in the world cup.”
