October in Puerto Rico


It is wonderful to be in Puerto Rico again.  Even though I was just here last month, I enjoy the opportunity to work on this beautiful island.  Last week, I was with the National GEM Consortium in Mayagüez, which is on the west coast of Puerto Rico. This week, I am spending time in a variety of cities in the center of the island. It’s an interesting feeling for me … I’m not a tourist, but not native, but I am grateful to the people for their warmth and kindness toward me.  Here are some photos, more are coming.

The following photos show food from the Raices (“Roots”) Restaurant in Old San Juan.  The dishes are mofongo (a dish made from mashed plantains) with chicken, mofongo with shrimp, and  sweet plantains (“amarillos”) with rice.
