the midst of my manic home renovation projects, a ridiculously sweet opportunity fell square into my lap, wholly unbidden. How would I like to go to San Juan, Puerto Rico for a couple of days? Oh, and it would be during the weekend before my birthday. How's about I bring along some friends? For free. Yup, this happened. Times like this, you have to realize that life does not suck.
Although Puerto Rico is a scant two hour flight from Miami, I had previously never had a chance to fully explore this Caribbean island. Joined by four of the funnest people you could ever travel with, Ivon, Jorge, Lily and Israel, I was able to right this egregious wrong.
