Hometown: Aguada, Puerto Rico

My name is Cyd Marie Miranda, I'm a Puerto Rican and a journalism graduate that got accepted into the CIEE Teach in Spain Basics Program. I love food, occasionally taking pictures of it, but mostly eating it. Also, I love to travel, occasionally complaining about not being able to do it enough, but mostly enjoying the times I do. Lastly,I love learning, occasionally with a book or laptop in hand, but mostly by life's flops or as they now call them "life experiences", but hey, that's me and I'm here ready to blog it all.
