This morning I woke up feeling like I had a hangover 

Yesterday was a long day for me, and now I'm paying for that. I started the day at the gym at 8 am, that was the gym without air conditioner in the summer, near desert heat we're living with in Puerto Rico right now. (The power was out.) After the gym I came home, changed … Continue reading This morning I woke up feeling like I had a hangover 

A different kind of celebration

There is something you can't have enough of in your life and that's good friends, those who are always there. I have talked about this before but I'm lucky enough to have more than a few of those. Two of them took me out for my birthday this weekend and it made my birthday even … Continue reading A different kind of celebration

Easter weekend at the beach

It seemed everyone was at the beach in San Juan and probably in the rest of Puerto Rico today; this is very normal on Easter or Semana Santa.

What kind of random question is that? I mean, if you ask my mom and me obviously the answer is … Continue reading Nothing bad comes from bread

For the last two weeks we have been celebrating because our baseball team, #teamrubio, had an amazing journey in the World Baseball Classic. Our team's participation had everyone glued to the tv, even those of us who don't like baseball or normally watch it; it was the same feeling we had last summer when Monica … Continue reading #TeamPuertoRico

2017 World Baseball Classic

I never really liked baseball; I thought it was too slow, well I still think it's too slow. My grandma tried to teach my brother and me when we were little because she likes it but I was never good at it; maybe that's another reason I don't like it. I could never hit the … Continue reading 2017 World Baseball Classic

Istanbul Turkish Restaurant in San Juan 

As we were leaving old San Juan yesterday a little after lunch hour, we tried to find somewhere to have lunch. Among all the restaurants in San Juan, most of them serving Puerto Rican food, we ended up in Istanbul. As you may figure by the name, Istanbul is a Turkish restaurant. Here, their menu … Continue reading Istanbul Turkish Restaurant in San Juan
