Guess who's back?

Dear Internets,

We're back from Puerto Rico! The trip was lovely, although Achilles was sick for most of it. He didn't have swine flu, though, so I still think the trip was a win.

Since photo posts tend to make my attention span go out the window, I figured I'd limit this post to a few of my more interesting pictures. Sadly for you, I chose not to take pictures of the Sea School: Law School of the Sea or the cockfighting arena by our hotel.

Flaminco Beach, on Culebra. Our favorite beach. The water was lovely, and the sand was soft and white. I kept thinking to myself, "Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives..." I don't know if the beach was empty because it wasn't the weekend, but there were only a few other people there.

El Morro (I think).

Sunset at the beach by our hotel (in Isla Verde).

Coconuts: the other other white meat.
Jane: the other other other white meat.

An iguana in the parking lot of the Bacardi factory. When you hear bushes rustling in Texas, it's probably a squirrel. In Puerto Rico, it's probably some kind of reptile. This takes some getting used to.

I think this picture sums up the trip really well. Poor Achilles.

I don't really want to connect my full name to this blog, but if you promise you are not a scary person, I'll send you a link to the full Facebook album of our trip. Just send me an email or leave a comment.


P.S. If you ever have a chance to visit Puerto Rico, do it. It is inexpensive and awesome.

Jane: the other HOT meat.

BTW... not only is Puerto Rico inexpensive... you also don't need a passport.
