Mamá is a social butterfly and lover of laughter and good times. She, like any carefree puertorriqueño salsas her way through the obstacles and open doors of life. In the heyday of the new Latin sound, she spent her weekends twirling on the dance floor with her friends and a rum and coke. She is a woman after my own heart. It is a party whenever we are together. She plays my favorite songs by Héctor Lavoe como "Mi Gente" y "Que Lío." She reminisces about the 70s and brings me along.
