I have been exploring some alternatives lately to feel more busy. I started to draw and paint again, and I will show some draws to you soon. But, I was thinking in doing something more in this area. Indeed, we have some furniture at home that I do not especially like. So, I decided that it was time to actually do something about it instead of complaining!
Today, I am presenting Miami Spice, an annual event that we really enjoy here. It starts on August the 1st until September the 30th (next edition is starting soon!). The goal is to attract people to go to restaurants during a time of the year that is not very suitable for this activity (humidity+ rain).
Living in a foreign country is an exciting opportunity, as everybody will tell you. But, is is always a dream or sometimes the unique available option?
For us, the answer would certainly be a mix of these two cases.

We went several times to The Mezzanine, a very fun and typical bar of San Juan, Puerto Rico. They have original cocktails and delicious tapas. Do not hesitate to go there during your stay!
I had the opportunity to watch The Story of Stuff, which is a 20 minutes animated documentary about the lifecycle of material goods. My first thought after watching this was that everybody should take these short 20 minutes to watch this powerful documentary. Annie Léonard, who wrote and narrated the film, is an American proponent of sustainability and a critic of excessive consumerism.
We spent a few days in Boston recently. It wa sour second visit in this city and, this time, we took the opportunity to visit a few new places, such as the Boston Public Library. It is located in Copley Square, in Back Bay‘s borough. You will find a metro exit close to the library, and, anyway, you can’t really miss this impressive building.
