What an honor, privilege and surprise it was to accompany Puerto Rico’s Governor, Alejandro Garcia Padilla, along the entire parade route at the Puerto Rican Day Parade in my native New York City today! It was also very inspiring to see New York’s Governor, Andrew Cuomo, in attendance and in his culturally appropriate attire! 
I’ll have much more to share after I get a good night’s rest because I wasn’t expecting a three mile hike today at a sprite pace (and, without breaks the whole way!) and am happily exhausted! NEWYORICANGIRL 🙂
