Re Cap: Quisqueya en el Hudson: July 11 2010 ( rebirth for me )

            My son and I woke up during our daily home routine on Sunday morning, and as we finished, we got excited to go out and meet Aquino's little brother Ray Pena. It was also exciting to get the park, as I was to reunite with Ray. Once linked up with Ray, out side of the DYCKMEN'S ( A ) train station, I then saw able to see how beautiful this amazing park was, from where we were standing. To add; I never been there before, as a New Yorker that sucks.

walking to the site, there were many of its founders of this event, gearing up, toning equipments, gathering and organizing the area. I didn't know what to expect. from what I was told this event happened annually, and its is its 15th year of doing so. WOW since me living in the city, I never knew about such things like these

As soon as  set up near the stage, I took some time to get my old camera, to try to capture the feeling that I was getting from the moment I stepped into this enclosed park. The feeling was so unique, was so inviting that all I could do was stand there and take a deep breath while I look around me and smile. I felt happy, although I didn't know anyone there.

In that moment, I heard music coming from a corner of the park. I walked to wards it, and the following video is what I captured before the show even started.
