During the opening ceremony, Ricky danced bomba, one of the native rhythms we review in our book Puerto Rico is Music.

These masks made ​​of coconut, and painted in multiple colors.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone! viagra without doctor prescription
