|Travelogue, Part 1 of 2
Mad Scientess Jane Expat
As most of you probably haven't noticed, unless you've recently searched my journal for backdated entries, I've put up the first seven days of the Puerto Rico travelogue.
Day 1: Arrival
Day 2: Acclimatization
Day 3: Visual
Day 4: Dorado to Lares to Arecibo
Day 5: NYE
Day 6: Welcome to 2006
Day 7: Pork and rum
I draw your attention in particular to Days 3 and 6 for their photo galleries, and Day 5 for swimsuits.
I'm afraid they must have been terribly disappointed, as the pictures aren't really provocative. I don't think I got a single full-body shot of me in my bikini, either, since holding the camera at arm's length provides a limited view.

ahh,,, i feel caught up now!!
the photos you took on your 'sneak-out' are really lovely & have the feeling of someone out by their lonesome in their wandering head taking photos..
to me, anyway..
omg! i totally want to start drinking rum now!
& i want to go to a warm island!
It's not quite done yet. There'll be more probably on Monday. At least I hope I can finish by then, and can get back on my usual schedule.
Rum is good! I don't think most people think of it as something you can drink straight, but there are some lovely rums out there that don't need mixers. They can be hard to find outside the Caribbean though.

o;; goody! more!
i missed the nanila posting; truly.
i have stayed away from it because it was the first thing i got the sick from..
but i think i can make a sneaky approach back to it now;; although, i am the kind of girl who would want the fancy stuff. i'll have to read up & see what i can find here in this fine city..
would you, perhaps, have any recommendations?
Since you live in NYC, you *should* be able to find my favorite rum, Ron del Barrilito (Puerto Rican, the three-star variety - look at the neck label for the stars). It's one of the easier places to find it the States because of the Nuyorican population. It'll also be relatively expensive ($25-$30/bottle), but it's so worth it.
I'm also really fond of the Appleton Estate rums (Jamaican; the 21-year is verrry expensive, and the 9-year is almost as tasty in my opinion) and the Ron Barceló (Dominican).
