‘Every friday, the friday five website asks bloggers to answer five questions in their blogs–here it goes.

1. What is your lineage? Where are your ancestors from?
I am 100% Puerto Rican. My mom is a Puerto Rican mestizo and is mostly of Spanish (Spain) and Taino (Natives of Puerto Rico) descent. My father is a Puerto Rican mulatto of African descent and could possibly trace his roots back to the Mandingo tribes that came from what is modern day Liberia.

2. Of those countries, which would you most like to visit?
Since I’ve already been to Puerto Rico (I was born there), I would have to say Spain.

3. Which would you least like to visit? Why?
Liberia. Like nearby Sierra Leone, Liberia is filled with civil unrest that would make a visit a bit dangerous.

4. Do you do anything during the year to celebrate or recognize your heritage?
Not really.

5. Who were the first ancestors to move to your present country (parents, grandparents, etc)?
My mother.
