Travel Files: A stroll through Old San Juan

Kali picked me up from my hotel Friday afternoon. I climbed in her car, and we formally introduced ourselves to each other. It was our very first time meeting. I immediately noticed her striking bone structure and kind eyes. She wore minimal makeup, a headwrap styled into a mohawk and red lips. She told me […]
