SAN JUAN – I feel bad about not writing more about my many adventures since arriving in Puerto Rico a week ago, but the truth is that I have been in a state of almost constant motion. Each day has brought something new. Yesterday, for example, we explored the northeast portion of the island, particularly around Fajardo. I got to see the house that Miriam lived in until she was eighteen years old. Then, at dusk, we climbed in a kayak and paddled across a small bay, through a natural channel surrounded by mangroves and trees, and into a lagoon unlike any other I have ever seen in my life. It glowed.
I’ll write about it all, I swear. But, right now we’re headed south, to Ponce, to see the historic town, and see the Caribbean Sea.
