Catching up

I can’t believe it has already been a month since the fall break trip to the beach. It has been a busy month, but not a lot of adventures to report on. Here are some things I’ve been up to.

Toward the end of October I joined my coworkers again for another Breast Cancer Awareness run. This time we did 8.4km. It was a fun morning, but boy was I tired later!

Getting ready to run.

But, that didn’t stop me from getting getting some good food the following day at a Cuban restaurant nearby. It was so yummy! Fried plantains as a starter (complimentary) and mojitos! Then I ordered a burger with a naturally gluten-free bun. It is a patacón bun, which is flattened and fried plantain. It was delicious. I will be going back to Rincón Cubano in Lindora for sure!



I also got a crazy idea for a Halloween costume when I saw some graffiti leggings. So, not only did I buy a Frankenstein cake for my tutor group to eat while watching M. Night Shyamalan’s The Village, I also dressed up as the Lennon Wall (in Prague).IMG_0397

And last weekend I saw a great little flamenco show, enjoyed some good Chilean malbec and some delicious Spanish tapas at Al Tapas here in Santa Ana. This place is quickly becoming one of my favorite places to go!10432467_689435598972_4993004014280142859_n
