Puerto Rico ~

Life’s true gift lies in your freedom to design it beautifully.
 With each rise of the sun, you get to chase the opportunity to 
fill your days with meaning—to live your life the way you choose....

Puerto Rico is my childhood home.  My sister Rima 
was born there and there we met the kindest people in the 
world, and PR definitely has the best food as far as I am 
concerned.  I'm talking typical Puerto Rican food.

If you go to Puerto Rico make sure you check out 
Plaza Las Americas.   Even their food court has amazing food.

Definitely has it's fair share of amazing sunsets.

Stunning beaches and palm trees galore.  Island living at its best.

Whatever you want you will find.  You just need 
to know where to go, who to ask.  My favorite umbrella drinks.

  The piña colada is an internationally famous drink, 
but many may not know that it originated in Puerto Rico
 In 1978 Puerto Rico proclaimed the cocktail its official drink.

The food, the drinks, coffee there is nothing that
one can find fault with.  I love Puerto Rican food.
One of my favorites of all times, if not my favorite.
 The flavors are outstanding.  Indian food is also on the
top of my list. Either of the two, you can never go wrong.

There is something for everyone.  Even Arvid
whose palate is a little more "selective" than mine.

The views from my sisters home are beautiful.
She has the mountains as her backyard.  She's also
 fortunate to have a condo in the city, which is where
she lives most of the time when not in Miami.

It's always good times when I spend it with my sister/sisters.
Once we get back home, I definitely will have to refrain
from these island drinks for a while.  So far we have
had quite a few, but boy it's been delicious.

Arvid and Nirvana get along really well.  Together the
 3 of us always have some very good times.   I am really
grateful that he gets along with all of my family.  Some of course
a little better than others, but that just has to do with the fact
that he knows a few of my sisters better than others.

I'm loving every moment here in Puerto Rico.
Here is to the many memories I will forever cherish.

I enjoy life when things are happening.  I don't care if it's
good things or bad things.  That means you are alive.  Life
doesn't require that we be the best only that we try our best...
