Puerto Rico 2012 - recap

Leticia and I took our first pseudo-international trip and it went well. We ended up going to, you guessed it, Puerto Rico. We stayed in Old San Juan and we had a blast. Here are the highlights:


Flavors of San Juan Food and Culture Tour

This was a fantastic experience for me because I love to eat delicious foods. Sure, the tour guide was friendly and informative, and the other tour goers were okay, but, the food was delicious. We toured four different restaurants, drank the piña colada, ate plantains, and I loved every minute of it.

Catamaran Salty Dog

Who knew, that I love sailing! The motion of the ocean. The sea breeze. The sea men. And rum. Lots, and lots of rum. This is where I discovered my new favorite drink, the painkiller - an exciting mix of orange juice, pineapple juice, coconut cream (or milk), cinnamon, and Don Q rum!

The Puerto Rico 2012 Theme Song! (unofficial)

Here is a video, of the song that I feel captures the spirit of this trip, enjoy. Please note, it may take you to the youtube website rather than actually play the video. Something to do with copyright.


El Yunque

We hiked the rainforest and splashed in its icy cold waterfalls! It was very cold and I imagine it was very filthy but I had a great time shivering and gasping for breath before we got out. On our return trip from the rainforest we lost our camera at a fantastic little shack of a restaurant.

Recap

Loved Puerto Rico. The people were really nice. The food was delicious. If I could make a living there, I would (leave suggestions for how to earn income while living in Puerto Rico in the comments).
