I´m from Havana, Cuba living in Madrid and enjoying life in this great town. I enjoy traveling and discovering new places, new people and all that the world has to offer. I like good food, cheese, Bellota ham and good wine. I enjoy all kinds of music with a focus on rock and roll, Jazz, Classical and Opera. Broadway shows are a passion and love to walk in museums, catch up on history books and reading in general is a great experience.
