Puerto Rico se levanta

Puerto Rico rises.  It’s the new slogan after Maria.  When we returned one of the first things I noticed was the abundance of PR flags on cars and houses. Displays of local pride were always on the low side here (I always noticed much more tshirts, bumper stickers and flags for local teams back in the States versus here). It’s nice to see a passive show of support and unity.

This is something I just never saw before Maria

Together we are stronger – we are collecting first aid articles and canned goods for the damned by Hurricane Maria. Ok, it actually means Damaged/casualties but that’s not as funny to say.

I went out and bought a $2 flag for our car. I can hear it whap low-lying branches when I drive. oh well.

Posters and tshirts abounded too.

Efforts to have a normal Christmas are underway as well (the usual holiday lights are up in the plaza).  And memes bringing much needed humor abound too.

Crash Boat beach is in Rincon, very far from the famous Ponce sign haha

How do I decorate for Christmas without lights?

Welcome: I only have available ketchup and straws
