One week since we left our little apartment in San Diego. From full work mode, to driving home to CO, spending 72 hours at home, then off to ABQ to get 3 flights to Puerto Rico. Whew!
Made it to San Juan and ran into Summer, David, Mom, and Steve as soon as we got out of the taxi. Perfect. Had some drinks in the hotel room (Mojitos anyone?) and wandered out to check out the town.
Steve and I decided to hit the tiny bar in our alley and had a blast! We befriended a local woman named Mayra probably in her 50s who we danced (she and her cousin TRIED to teach us to Salsa) and drank with. Past midnight it was my birthday so the celebration was on. The bartender was just as messed up as we were and would have forgotten to charge us completely had we not asked him how much we owed. He just sort of looked confused and said "um, $20". Cool.
Rough morning, but made it to Sum & David's swank Hotel Caribe and drove out to the ferry in their rental car where the lines were HOURS long. Shit. And in the sweltering heat too. Managed to sort of sneak in line near the front and finally managed tickets for the 9:30 ferry to Viequez.
Incredible Snorkeling in Culebra!
The island of Culebra has a lot of personality, the popular Flemenco beach, and some outstanding snorkeling. << old website quick post >>
My 40th Bday - Bio Bay!!
Veiquez, Puerto Rico, a great place to spend the big four-oh. We went to bio bay for some bioluminescent plankton and did some great snorkeling before heading to Culebra. << old website quick post >>
