    Glad you had fun. I've never been to Puerto Rico. Do you need a passport to go there, or is it like going to Indiana, just a little strange or different (better weather, I'm sure)?

    Welcome home!!!!! Following the doctors orders probably allowed you to enjoy your trip more!

    Hi Linda,
    Welcome back! Your post just sounds more cheerful than past ones. Isn't it great to get away and recharge?
    I'm glad that you had such a fund vacation. Now, don't work too hard!

    Thanks guys I had an amazing time! I wish I could live there year around, glad I still have family there too. Yes Danica following Drs orders helped inmensely, and hubby was not having it any other way lol, Jmail you don't need a passport to visit Puerto Rico although its not a state, its US territory. People are super friendly and lots of people speak english, the food is AMAZING and so its night life. There's so much to do you wont' ever be bored!
    Yes Marla, thankfully its a cheery post for once LOL, it felt good to be "home"

    Linda,
    One of the Spanish teachers whom I used to work with came from Puerto Rico. She sounded exactly like that beautiful lady who stars in that show, Modern Family. Rosa is beautiful too, and looks like an older version of that actress. She was such a joy to have as a friend, and the food that she would bring to our teachers' lounge was outstanding.
    She would also speak fondly about Puerto Rico, and taught her students a lot about it.
    Hugs,
    Marla
