When President Obama went to Puerto Rico to hustle votes, he made sure to name drop “arroz con gandules.” He didn’t use the more widely known “arroz con frijoles” linked to Cuban or Mexican cuisine. Instead he mentioned the pigeon pea and rice dish more popular among Puerto Ricans.
Hi, my name is Gonzalo, and I’m a technoholic!
Yes, I have to admit it, I can’t sleep waiting for OS X Lion, I’m so looking forward to iOS 5, I can recite the keynote about the iCloud, I’m already on Google+, I’m wondering about the dual-SIM phones, reviewing the latest tablets, Internet TVs, and this list goes on and on. I am a gadget and technology addict.
An account director and a creative director took a weekend off to hike in the woods.

Traveling has become a way to escape from the daily grind. Doesn’t matter how far we go, as long as we disconnect, relax and regenerate. It’s called “escapism”. Lately, it’s been visiting family in Colombia or Dominican Republic and family trips to Orlando (yes, you know where). And although no time away from home is taken for granted, I long to go back to traveling for the pure pleasure of experiencing new cultures, foods and languages. It enriches my life in ways I can’t explain. It renews me.

Me impresionó sobremanera la “buena administración” de sus gobiernos, muy diferente en comparación con la administración en nuestros países, de este lado del planeta.
