On a Personal Note…

Book on your night table:
It changes constantly but I currently have Cien Años de Soledad by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Harry Potter is the only that never leaves the night table.

Favorite quote:
“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”
– Friedrich Nietzsche

Culinary Weakness:
Cheese. And chocolate. Not together. And ajiaco colombiano. Anything Colombian really.

Favorite Pastime:
Travel, travel, travel, dancing and eating. 

Best Childhood Memory:
Christmas with my whole family, we are 18 cousins just on my father’s side. And New Year’s Eve on the beach.

 Favorite Musicians:
I listen to a little bit of everything, from Latin music to Italian rap. Favorite would have to be Juan Luis Guerra though.

A life lesson:
Si el problema tiene solución, no hay porque preocuparte pues sabes cómo solucionarlo.
Si el problema no tiene solución, no hay porque preocuparte, acéptalo y sigue adelante.
