un viaje puertorriqueño

{the small town of boqueron}

{boqueron beach}

{playa sucia}

{a trip to san juan}

{crash boat beach}

featured above: a much needed break from the rigors of graduate school.  we stayed at a small beachside resort in the southwest corner of the island, in a small town called boqueron.  while boqueron (translated as "anchovy" in spanish...?) is no tourist-attracting // cruise ship-porting san juan, the six of us quickly fell in love with the tiny little town.  we charmed our way to free drinks at will's restaurant, almost adopted a stray puppy from alex at galloway's, made a bad name for all american girls while paddle boarding with ignacio, and caught a free ride to the rental car place with manny.  we drank piña coladas and ate tostones all of the days, explored the crystal clear depths of las playas, karaoked to bon jovi with some locals, and were so sad to say goodbye to our tiny corner of the island that we had made our own when the 7 days were up.  

now back to the grind and some summer internship decision-making.  ciao!
