Live and Learn Saturday: San Juan, Puerto Rico

Welcome to San Juan, Puerto Rico!!!

Fact: Puerto Rico is one of the Greater Antilles, in the Carribean. San Juan is the capital.

Fact: All you need is a driver’s license or government issued ID if you live in the US because it is US territory.

Pictures: My hotel, top right. Walked over the overpass to get to the gym and the Denny’s. Starbucks is right next to our hotel.

Fact: Official languages are English and Spanish.

Personal Experience: Spanish is the most common language. I was in the tourist area so most people I encountered and dealt with in the city spoke at least some level of English. I understand a little Spanish myself so we met each other halfway.

Puerto Rico vacation pictures will continue. I might spice it up the order a little but I will share more pictures about the surroundings and the actual city. Keep an eye for my Live and Learn Saturdays series to see more photos…  Here is a preview picture below:

  3. Yes … have been too many time to list. My family took us children to the island and visited where they were born. I was sent to an academy there for a year in a small town mygrandmother grew up in. If you’d like to read my post – http://insidethemindofisadora.wordpress.com/2011/11/18/the-benedictine-monastery-academy/
    It was quite an experience. Glad you had a nice time while you were there. I’m off to see the other post of more pix’s.
