Culturally Different

Leave a comment


I have been blessed to see a small part San Juan, Puerto Rico 🇵🇷. A vacation that was planned months ago. I never really knew what to expect except nice beaches, and great food.  


You never really know about anything until you’ve truly experienced it on your own terms. 

WOW! I was so accustomed to traveling to the Dominican Republic, I thought I would try something new.  Call me gullible, but I was intrigued by the culture that has been preserved by the Puerto Rican ancestors. When I walked through Old San Juan, I was amazed by many things. 


Food, art, the brick roads, the colorful paintings on the walls, the books I saw on the streets, the cafes, the people, the heritage, …the culture. 

If you are a Historian, or you have a desire to preserve the history or your country, please do so. Preserving historical events is so important for other generations and it truly touches and inspires the souls of others.

I know this blog is rather short, only because I have an early flight. My sister asked me during my trip if I was enjoying Puerto Rico better than the DR?  Although they are culturally different, there’s no comparison.
