Well, I live on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. I am not Puerto Rican, but I have been living here for about 7 years, which is long enough to make me thoroughly confused as to what my own culture is. My husband is actually not Puerto Rican but half Costa Rican, so now our family is even more culture shocked. We make the most of it. Passions? Hobbies? It's hard to chose which ranks over the other, so I will say it is a tie, but cooking/baking and photography are at the top of my "hobbies" list. It's funny because I never went to school for either, which many are surprised to learn that, since my dedication to both hobbies as yeilded some pretty cool results. Amazing what you can learn from books!
