I moved here from Puerto Rico about two and a half years ago, and Baltimore has become a second home. I love the confluence of art, grit, low- and high-brow entertainment, and everything in between.
I do miss being able to drive twenty minutes and be on a beach, however.
I stay active, either by going to the gym, running around Lake Montebello, or hiking with friends near Harper's Ferry. I try to eat well, and usually cook my own stuff to brown bag for work. I hand-grind my coffee beans, and drink espresso so dark and heavy on the tongue it should be anti-matter.
