I'm a curious person and I like to learn new things. I am reading a book on Almodovar currently and borrowing his movies from the library. I started with Women on the Verge of Nervous Breakdown. This is the first movies of his I saw when I was in college. A long time ago! I also enjoy cooking and like to watch cooking shows and teach myself new dishes about once or twice a month. I recently made a leek and mushroom free form tart. It came out beautifully. :) Cooking is one way I relax and ground myself. Cooking for friends is also something I really like. The last time I had friends over, I made a paella,then we went Bhangra dancing and salsa dancing. I like to be active: I practice yoga and go Salsa dancing on average of 2-3x per week. I like to read. A good book, like a good friend takes you deep inside yourself. I like conversations that are like reading a good book.
When people talk to me they often ask where I am from. I have an accent that is hard to peg. I have been asked if I am from Spain, Canada, Russia, Ireland. I rather enjoy how my accent is confounding. I was born overseas in Peru. Lived in Puerto Rico, Brasil, CT, Virginia and now SF. I think my experience of living in different countries has definitely shaped me and makes me different from people who have lived in one place all their lives.
