Name:Anthony Diaz
Birthdate:Jan 17
Location:Seattle, Washington, United States of America
You can call me Saavedra.

I'm half Puerto Rican, but very Anglo; an only child, but also the youngest of 6; the relatively quiet/reserved one in a very large, very loud family. 

I'm a voracious reader of novels, history, poli sci, poetry, etc.; a dedicated moviegoer; a fan of Alt rock, Latin, Celtic, & various other musics; a fair-weather cyclist; & bookstore & coffee shop habitué. 

"Nothing Like the Sun" is meant to be a place to talk about news from around the world, politics, movies, music, travel & (at least occasionally) my own personal soap opera. Posts about current events, culture & such are public; posts about the soap-operatic stuff may or may not be "Friends"-only. (So, if you want in, "Friend" me & introduce yourself!)
