    By the way, that mother in law was caliente!!!!!

    Some times when I was making love to my wife I was thinking of her.

    I swear the Madonna in the church of San Jose' melted once when I did this.

    Not knowing the cause the Catholic Church declared it a miracle.

    If you want to visit an Island go to the Dominican Republic. Casa de Campo has some great deals now and then. I like Puerto Rico 20 years ago but the last time I was there, in 2001, the place was covered up in greasy headed crackheads.

    Dougers, the last time I was there was 1990, so you may be on to something.

    And all those greasy haired ice addicts might just be Hugo Chaves' cracked babies.

    I was stationed there 30 years ago. Those who say it is primitive now have no idea what they are talking about. It was fairly backward in the 80s, but they have all the modern amenities there, now.

    The citizens of Puerto Rico are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. When I was there, one of the biggest insults one Puerto Rican could call another was "New York Rican". They consider the Puerto Ricans who live in New York to be an entirely different breed. I think there may actually be more Puerto Ricans in New York than on the entire island of Puerto Rico.

    But I digress.

    As I said, great people. And they know how to party.

    I used to joke about how most Americans who visit Puerto Rico stayed in the tourist part of San Juan. They stayed in a Hilton that was just like any in the US, and their entire experience of Puerto Rico was the casinos and the beach just outside their hotel. Perhaps a guided tour of El Yunque (the local tropical forest).

    You may as well save airline money and rent a hotel room in the nearest large city to where you are if that is your plan. They probably have brown-skinned maids there, too.

    The island is 100 miles long. There is a highway that circles the entire island (PR 3). Drive around the whole thing. Stay in hotels/motels/inns that are off the tourist guide. Experience the real Puerto Rico and the people. They are lovely.

    Let me tell you, Puerto Ricans know how to party. Holy shit, they know how to party. I don't know if it is still the case, but Old San Juan was one gigantic block party after dark. You could go into just about any doorway and get an adult beverage and then take it out to the street and mingle with thousands of people.

    I hope they still do that. It was awesome.

    If you like cigars, you can get some good Dominicans there, too.

    Yeah, no shit.

    The Puerto Rican drivers are pretty bad, but I agree that driving in Naples was ten times more exciting.

    I did get rear-ended on PR 3 once. At a red light. Guy hit me going about 50 miles an hour. I don't know what he was doing, but he wasn't watching the road. It was a miracle we all survived.

    Great vacation spot.

    Make sure to go to Old San Juan and El Yunque.

    There are some dangerous parts of San Juan just as there are dangerous parts of any city. But for people to paint the entire island as some third world shoot 'em up place is grossly abusive.

    One very important thing to bear in mind: Puerto Rico is much closer to the equator. If you are a pasty visitor from the States, you will burn your skin right off in less than an hour if you don't wear sunscreen.


    I just remembered they have really awesome snorkeling trips you can take. Catamaran takes you out for a swim and a lunch. Those are worth it.
