My inspiration is Nilla and her unconditional love for us and the kindness she shows to everyone. She makes me a better person and I love her more than words can describe. Dogs are the best, most amazing creatures!
In the words of Betrand Russel, “There are two kinds of resignation, one motivated by despair and the other unconquerable hope.” - - -

One of my favorite experiences in Cuba was learning about Afro-Cuban culture-particularly the religion of Santeria. Of the many slaves brought to Cuba, most were from the Yoruba tribe of what is now Nigeria. Unable to practice their religion freely and forced to conform to Christianity, they merged the two cultures-creating Santeria. Learning about Santeria took me back in time to ancient rituals, secret societies, and the unfortunate legacy of slavery. Cubans are a proud people and it’s fascinating to see how much of their history and culture they were able to preserve. I’m thankful for all the amazing people I met and friendships I formed!
I found this beautiful door with the contrasting azulejos in the city centre of Portimão. Portimão is one of the biggest cities in the Algarve. It is situated in the south and is known for its historic city centre, its harbour as well as its beaches.
