Bye bye summer 

July 31st, the last day of summer in Puerto Rico. Tomorrow teachers go back to work, which means children have only one more week of vacation.

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 

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.

We have to talk about lechón asado

We have to talk about food tonight. There are these amazing places in Puerto Rico called lechoneras, which means they make lechón asado or pork. Sounds good right? Well, it is, very good! My favorite lechonera is El Cuñao in the town of Cayey, where we went for lunch today. It was a last minute thing but … Continue reading We have to talk about lechón asado

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

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

First trip to the beach

Today was an exiting day for Indi and Sandy; after the morning walk we decided to take them to the beach for the first time. They had walked through the beach in their morning walks on weekends, but today we didn't walk by the beach, we actually went to the beach. When we got there … Continue reading First trip to the beach

A day at the dog park

When I was growing up we used to go to this park where we could run around all day, there were swings, a lot of trees, grass to run around in and get covered in dirt and anything else we could find. I remember going there a lot when I was in elementary school for … Continue reading A day at the dog park
