Introduction

This is a blog about HIStory, HERstory, MYstory and OURstories. Some of these stories are 100% percent true, and for some of them, since I am Latin, I have added some spices, salt and pepper, and some times a little bit of drama to them. Some of them are so personal, that I have used the facts and made a fictionalized story out of them to protect those who were involved.

These stories are drawn from more than 25 years of traveling around the world, of interaction with wonderful and incredible women, men, places, foods, smells and senses. They have been my university – bringing me a smile and a couple of tears. They also remind me that we need to live passionately and laugh intensely – sometimes even laughing about ourselves. By telling these stories I hope you can experience the pleasure of this journey, a journey that I share with you.
