Today, I wanted to show you some photos I took a bit of a long time ago. They had been originally posted in my Blogger website.   Since my blogger went the way of the dinosaur, I figured I would post it in my Artsy Sister website.   Without any more introductions, I wanted to show you some closeup photos that I took.   When I was in Florida International University, I took a photography class as part of my Journalism Major.   Such a class wasn’t required for my major.   Still, I figured that a journalist should learn...

Today, I wanted to write about what I ate this weekend. I went up to Miami Beach with my family. Once the rains came, we got like super hungry. So, we decided to eat at Sazon Restaurant. They are under new management, so the food is a little different. We started with the appetizers, mariquitas. They are chips made of banana. You have two choices of dip: mojo and black beans grounded into a fine paste.   Mother had pork and my brother had a sandwich. Mine was made of chicken. It was really yummy, with all the elements in...

Today, I wanted to make a foodie bog about the Rodizio. The Rodizio is a restaurant inside the Barcelo Maya Palace. It does both steak and pasta, just like it says in the sign. Of course, it isn’t fair to summarize the experience in that single sentence. So, I am going to narrate the entire dining experience.   This should give you a general idea as to what to expect of your visit. The first thing we had to do was get a reservation. All the fancy restaurants in the Barcelo Resort are by reservations. We chose to dine on...

Today, I wanted to write a blog about some of the nice décor I saw in the Barcelo Maya Palace. When one talks about a resort, it is important to talk about the ambience. It depends on what you consider important.   As for me, I like to look at random decorations and blog about them. The first thing I wanted to talk about are these cute figurines. They are ceramics that are drawn over. Most of them feature faces of maidens in different outfits.   It has quite the peculiar cartoonish style that is quite charming. In the gift...
