Hello! I'm a 53 year old Hispanic gay male, currently living in the suburbs of Boston, MA. I grew up in NYC, and have a great love of all the fantastic cultural offerings that both my home town and my current living area provide. I love the live performance experiice! There are also very few forms of music that I will give a pass on, having spent college years dropping needles on vinyl discs at the umiversity radio station. Politically, I "Lean Forward" and I'm more apt to watch MSNBC or Current TV (No "FAUX NEWS" for me thanks!)
I'm a 2nd Gen. LatinoAmericano: My extended Family of Cuban (father) and Puerto Rican (Mother) ancestry started completely in New York; my generation and the next one have spread the family across the country, with relations in PA, CA, AZ, MD, MI, and FL just to name a few places. Opportunites for the family to come together and catch up are always eagerly looked forward to and excuses for many a vacation.
I like to think of myself as a "Traveler" rather than a "Tourist", in that I love getting an authentic feel of the places I visit, beyond the popular tourist spots. Spending time enjoying the uniqueness of a place by venturing off the well- worn tourist circuit and cookie-cutter Mega-Malls is what makes travel worthwhile for me.
