It just no happened that the inauguration for the new Governor of Puerto Rico was happening the day we were there. We heard music coming from the other side of the fort and of course had to go check it out. Thousands of people were there, a huge orchestra, speeches, flags, artillery fire salutes, cops on every corner, and it seemed a fun time for all. Being silly Americans, we climbed up on the hill overlooking the festivities where no one was so we could get a few good photos before the cops rousted us. You just plead “no habla espanol” and walk away – easy as Puerto Rican pie.
Suits and speeches. How long can this go on. That Catholic guy with the red hat gave the longest prayer I have ever heard. It was really hot and he prayed forever I eventually wanted to see Jesus just to make him stop.
During the inauguration festivities we fell into this little caribbean food restaurant prepared by a woman from the island of Nevis. There was no menu. You ate what she was preparing that day. Television was on in the background with all of the speeches and flag waving. Or course we are with Bob.
