Being An Expat II (The Bad & The Ugly)

As you must remember, dear Bohemian, my first post was about being an expatriate. What? You don’t remember? Well, it’s ok, I still love you…  And you can check it anytime, no rush… How about NOW? Anyway, I thought it was a good topic to begin with since I’m a...

It’s Starting Now And “It Ain’t Over ‘Till It’s Over”

Two months to go. Two months to say “So Long 2016, Happy 2017!”. Unless you live in a cave far, far away or have the serenity of a monk, it’s hard not to get carried away by the holiday spirit. And why shouldn't you? It’s a time to rejoice, celebrate, to be with...

Not That Night, Not For Us

“Look, there she is! Come on, guys, wake up to see the moon!” This was me on Monday waking up my kids to school at 6:50ish am. Finally. There she was. We searched for her on Sunday night but it was a bit cloudy and even though we could glimpse a bright patch of light...

The Aftermatthew

I write these words with relief… A relief that my life, my family, friends and my house were spared by Hurricane Matthew. I also write with a sincere grief for the ones who didn’t make it. For the ones who COULDN’T make it. The ones who suffered any kind of loss,...

“What Did Mom Say?”

Golden Boy

I don’t mean to brag but… Actually, I do. I really do. If there is a time when bragging shouldn’t be considered a capital sin of the ego, it’ s now. As everybody knows, the 2016 Olympic Games start today and this event speaks to my heart in a very loud way. 1) Rio de...

Hope in Yellow

Illustration by www.IdeasWithMaya.com Yesterday my family received the ultimate gift that any family could wish for: my sister/cousin (we were raised together) gave birth to a healthy and beautiful little boy angel. She lives in Brazil so my day could be described as...

Summer Heat: it’s going to get worse before it gets better…

I needed to get back to the Bungalow for my sanity’s sake! Here I am to dust off the furniture, open the windows and let the light in! I brought flowers, new books, some wine and more stories. Hello Bungalow, I missed you! I am back to my sanctuary leaving behind the...
