Folks, I am excited to say that the vacation I recently took was a much needed one and after 2 weeks of being out I enjoyed every minute of it. I must say, I did miss a lot of Tech News and to that note I can’t wait to start writing some exciting articles.
First I want to talk about the Vacation we took on the island of Puerto Rico, we left on July 26th and arrived in Puerto Rico at about 11am, after a bit of a hiccup with the rental company due to insurance regulations and the new express way toll system which does not accept cash anymore we were able to finally rent the vehicle and start our journey.
Our fisrt stop on this trip was a place to eat and in PR there are a lot of spots for just that, my favorite places to eat are always those food buses and we had found the perfect one. When we arrived the lady noticed we were speaking English and asked if we wanted to taste something we had never tasted before and of course our answer was yes. She made this soup out of fish with something we inside we call mofongo which is basically plantains mashed together with onions and pork skin and it was amazing. After that we ordered a traditional Spanish dish called Mofongo with salad. I ordered a plain one with fried pork cubes and my wife ordered one with stuffed shrimp inside, both dishes were to die for.
Once we were finished with all this great food, we decided to keep on going driving around with no specific site or place in mind to go, we just wanted to drive and just see what’s out there. My wife was wondering about a fruit native to the Caribbean Islands called Quenepas or Genips, Spanish lime in English, which is a fruit-bearing tree in the soapberry family Sapindaceae, native or naturalised over a wide area of the American tropics including Central America, Colombia, Venezuela, Suriname and the Caribbean. Everywhere you look in PR on the highways and streets you will see people selling bunches of this fruit cut straight from the tree and at a bargain price of just $2.00 dollars.
After buying this fruit we kept on going and visited a few Pueblos or Cities in PR and our first stop was a place called Ciales. We visited some family who still lives there and by the time we knew it it was dark so we headed back to the place we were going to stay which was in Coamo. The next day we went out for some more eating and visited quite a few other places, many to name here but the picture Gallery can give you an idea. One of our stops was the famous Morro or Fort in San Juan and that was a great experience. San Juan is full of life and its a popular tourist place that millions of people visit each year.
