For one afternoon, we three ladies decided to sign up for a tour by an art expert to help us navigate the Uffizi Gallery. We were very pleased with our guide, Angelo from “Walks of  Italy”   (Walksof who was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his subject. He made the art come alive by tying the history of the Medici Family, Lorenzo Medici, the Church’s  expectations, the Italians’ love of mythology with the artists of that time, such as Raphael, Lippi, Botticelli, Bernini, Michelangelo, Leonardo de Vinci and others during the Renaissance period which helped the artists to flourish and to create the  masterpieces we were admiring. It took about four hours to walk through more than 45 rooms to see some of the major pieces. I was thrilled with this tour and I learned enough to return.

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
