Eating at Las Margaritas Restaurant

Eating at Las Margaritas Restaurant

Hi everyone,

Yesterday night, I went to eat at Las Margaritas Restaurant, located in Ocala, Florida, where you can eat a variety of Mexican food, like burritos, fajitas, etc. It is a nice place to go and eat in family, and enjoy the food. Here, today, I’m sharing the plate I ate at this great restaurant.

This is their menú:

Quickly after sitting down, I ordered Sprite to drink:

And then, when I was ready to order, I ordered the Burrito Campechano, which, according to their menu, is a burrito with grilled steak and ground Mexican saugage, some vegetables, and somes with Mexican rice, refried beans, guacamole and sour cream:

This is actually the second time I go to this restaurant and I really like their food. It tastes good and the overal environment is really nice. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Let’s travel: I-75 / Florida’s Turnpike

Hi everyone,

In this post, I’ll show you some pictures of the route from the I-75 to Florida’s Turnpike, in the direction fron Ocala to Orlando.

Let’s begin our journey!

Now, it’s all a straight highway until we begin reaching Orlando’s I-4 signs.

I’m sorry this picture came like this. The phone took some time to take the photo. However, you can clearly see the sign says there’s no reported incidents so the traffic is in perfect conditions

Going to Apopka or Tampa? The exit is just 1 mile ahead

Now, this is my favorite part of the road.

And here’s the sign to take the exit to go to Orlando’s International Airport.

Here, this trip ends, as I was going to a house somewhere around after that exit, so I kept an eye on the GPS.

PLEASE NOTE: I was a passenger all the way. Drive safe and please, if you’re driving, don’t text and drive or take photos and drive.

Hope you enjoyed this photo session of some of the parts of Florida’s Turnpike!

Here’s the picture. Hope all of you like it!

A day at Kissimmee / Orlando

A day at Kissimmee / Orlando

Hi everyone,

Today, I’d like to talk about my day Yesterday.

I went to Kissimmee to a place called World Food Trucks, where lots of Food Trucks are and you can go eat and explore worldwide culture food.

To go, you just have to take the Kissimmee exit to 192 when you’re in the I-4 (Sorry for the quality, it was raining yesterday as well):

A day in Kissimmee - 1

You’ll then follow the route until you see at your left the World Food Truck sign. You’ll obviously turn left there. The trucks are at the back. I didn’t took a picture of the sign but at the right, you’ll see the jumping thing, and that’s the street light where you turn left:

A day in Kissimmee - 2

Once you find parking, you get out of your car and you enter the Food Truck area:

A day in Kissimmee - 3

There’s even more trucks, but since I’m Puertorrican, I decided to go to this Food Truck:

A day in Kissimmee - 4

There, I ordered a Mofongo with Churrasco:

A day in Kissimmee - 5

I also ordered an Oreo Frappé:

A day in Kissimmee - 6

And here’s me drinking it:

A day in Kissimmee - 7

On my way out of this place, I got to see the new Universal’s Volcano Bay theme park, which opened recently this summer:

Kissimmee - 0
(Yeah, not that great of a picture, but you get an outside view from the I-4)

At my right side, there’s the Orlando Eye Ferris Wheel:

Kissimmee - 1

Going deeper in the I-4, there’s also this other small park, which I don’t know it’s name as I haven’t went there yet:

Kissimmee - 2

After that, I just kept riding as a passenger until I returned home late night.

Hope you enjoyed these pictures!

Meet Puerto Rico – Carraizo Dam

Meet Puerto Rico – Carraizo Dam

Hi everyone,

Today, I’m gonna show you a video of the Carraizo Dam, located in Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico. It is important because from here we get water for most of the metropolitan area. If it gets dry, they start cutting water on some sectors until the dam gets full again. Hope you like this video!

In this video I’m going to share with all of you today, I’ll show you the Caonillas Dam, located in Utuado, Puerto Rico. It is an amazing dam in that there is a bridge up there and when you see one side, it is full with water and the other side is where the water comes out all the way down to form a small river.

Hope you like the video!

Meet Puerto Rico in 3D! – Tren Urbano

Meet Puerto Rico in 3D! – Tren Urbano

Hi everyone,

In this topic, I will be sharing with you the 3D version of the ride in the Tren Urbano, the Heavy Rail Mass Transit System of the metropolitan area in Puerto Rico. It consists of 16 stations and covers the towns of San Juan, Guaynabo and Bayamon.

Click here if you prefer to view the 2D version of this video.

The train operates 4 coupled vehicles from Monday to Friday and 2 couple vehicles during the weekend and holidays. It receives power via a 3rd rail and had a fare of $0.75 one-way but it was raised to $1.50 due to reported losses. Two-way would be either $3.00.

The ride lasts approximately 30 minutes from the first station to the last one.

The video I’m going to show you starts after the Piñero station all the way to Bayamon. Hope you like it! It is real 3D, recorded with a Nintendo 3DS:
