As a scholar my purpose is to provide & promote valuable information as a thank you to all those who have helped me in my scholarly journey.

The beautiful city of Mount Dora is located in Central Florida. It is know for its many festivals and Antique stores. Arepas are by far the best food item at the Art Festival this weekend. They are of South American origin and are sweet creamy corn patties with mozzarella. I am still dreaming about the next time I have the opportunity to eat one!

Sometimes all we need to do is to stop and in slow motion feel, hear, touch, smell & see how beautiful life is. Appreciate every little moment & cherish the wonderful memories of small things such as a mini flower bouquet from a caring friend, while strolling the streets of Berkeley, CA <3.

These are a collection of flower photos I have been able to capture during my travels. I have included some from my grandma’s garden from my hometown San Germán, Puerto Rico. The others are from beautiful gardens in Croatia and California.


One of my favorite seasons. Great weather, even in Orlando, Florida. Less humidity and cooler feel. Boots & Dresses type of weather ❤

“For Peace Alone Do I Ring”-Inscribed in the Hoover Tower’s largest bell.

A beautiful glance from Stanford’s historic Hoover Tower. This its a very inexpensive and or free tour, where you can learn a lot about the history of war, revolution and peace of America. It holds 48 bells, a gift from the Belgium-American Foundation. Provides a great view of the serene campus.
