I enjoy a variety of activities, such as: hiking; visiting museums; attending concerts; dining out or in. My musical interests include the following: jazz; pop; classical. Now that my children are young adults, they are away at their universities much of the year and I have more free time available. Therefore, I would like to make new friends for online communication, as well as to meet in person. I have had the opportunity to travel a good amount and appreciate a variety of cultures and viewpoints. I am open to getting to know persons from different parts of the world and learning about other cultures. Also, I am fluent in english and Spanish, and would like to learn other languages.
