After a wonderful and fantastic month away from the Island of Enchantment, it's really nice to be back. It seems like I made good timing too, since temperatures throughout Europe dipped further down below zero degrees celsius! What a difference from Puerto Rico! The weather is very comfortable here right now. Visiting the island during the winter season is definitely a good idea, as it's not too hot or humid. The constant sunshine and warm temperatures may be boring for some, but I'll take that over the freezing cold!

You Know You've Arrived in Puerto Rico....
when you're on an airplane, and people start clapping upon landing! This is almost guaranteed to happen, and it's a reminder of how much Puerto Ricans love their island. I think it's wonderful, because it reflects the boriqua spirit. As I was waiting for my brother to pick me up from the airport, I heard the sounds of the coquís, which can be heard especially at night. These frog-like creatures are entirely unique to Puerto Rico. You'll rarely see them, but they certainly make their presence known with their "coquí" sounds.
