Lost in the Rainforest

As I thought back to my short time of adventure in El Yunque National Rainforest, I wondered how many people get so distracted by the beauty of mountain after mountain of tall trees and the calls of birds and tree frogs that they end up getting lost in the rainforest.

For anyone with such a lack of a sense of direction as myself, it would be so easy to do just that.  Get distracted and lost!  For a little while at least, it might feel like I was lost in paradise.

Warmth of the Caribbean

After a day of temperatures hovering around -18˚ F, I find myself dreaming of waking up to meet tomorrow’s sunrise with the warmth of the Caribbean Sea splashing on my feet.

A City Enclosed

For centuries San Juan, Puerto Rico was a city enclosed by a 3-mile wall.  Access in and out was only through one of five gates, each one with a specific purpose.

Puerta de San Juan – San Juan Gate

This gate was San Juan’s formal entrance for Spanish dignitaries.  By entering through this gate, they were able to walk a short distance to San Juan Cathedral to thank God for safety during their voyage.
