I am Ruben.
I retired from working for the University of California in 2005. I am 65 years of age. I travel with my wife Teresa who retired as a school teacher in 2006. We previously visited Italy and France in 2004 and we are planning our first visit to Spain and Portugal (May 5 through May 25). You have some beautiful cities and places we would like to visit. We are very excited!
We have 4 children and are very proud of them. Two are doctors, one is an attorney and the 4th has a masters of social work and works as a supervisor with a job-training agency. We have 4 grand-children - ages 3 to 10.
I am an avid baseball fan and have followed the Los Angeles Dodgers since they moved to Los Angeles, from Brooklyn New York in 1958. I also jog and have entered and finished 17 marathons. My wife, Teresa, loves to window shop and she also likes to do Yoga. She is a member of the "Red Hat Society".
We like Latin Music and enjoy dancing Salsa and Merengue. We also enjoy watching Flamenco and Tango dancing.
Our son Ruben Omar, told us about airbnb and this is our first time using it. When traveling we generally do not stay around the hotel. We generally go out at mid-morning and see the sites and return in the late afternoon. We enjoy good conversation over good food and local wine. If this is accompanied by good music, then it is a real treat.
We enjoy our children but also enjoy the company of one another. 40 plus years of marriage is a testament to this fact.
Unfortunately, we are a little backward. We do not tweet or do (website hidden) or use any of the social media sites. I hope this is OK with you. We do have I phones and we can receive e-mail messages. We are also looking into an application that allows us to receive text messages on our phones while in Spain and Portugal.
We have not yet provided references on this site. If you feel the references are necessary we can provide them to you.
