So okay: Supa had to take a lil’ breather (you know, monthly womanly issues and general life shit), but she’s back, bitches! Hope everything has been fabulous and funky in your worlds…meanwhile, lemme hurrup and do this Puerto Rico wrap-up!
So get caught up here and here and here.
Next: Supa does the rainforest. El Yunque National Rainforest to be exact. The place was pretty cool. All nature-istic and shit. The drive up there was a lil’ crazy, ‘cause it was waaaay up in the mountains and you had to drive this lil’ dusty one lane road. No side railings to keep your ass from plunging over the side, feel me? Kept tellin’ Something Special to slooooww downn – Sup was having flashbacks of Left Eye’s fatal accident…
Here a few shots along the rain forest trail:
there's a butterfly in this picture, on the leaf!
THEN – that night, ya girl did it big. Took her lil’ ass over to the resort casino, and straight came up on the come up!! Now, Supa doesn't gamble (she shops), but she will play a lil’ blackjack. ‘Cause even when a lil’ tipsy, she can still add up the numbers “21.” (Eventually.)
So, I started with two five dolla chips and parlayed into over a hunnid. Ya girl was on fire!! The drunk ass Puerto Rican dude playing next to me kept congratulating me then cussing in Spanish. It was big fun. Supa played for a bit, won a little bit more, lost a little, then called it a night.
Then the high rollers came through, so me and Something Special watched them floss for a bit…one dude had stacks of $100 chips, he might’ve been holding two or three thou, easy. Of course Supa’s crafty ass was thinking, so okay…if I just snatched one of them stacks and made a run for it, wonder how far I could get in my wedgies…
Then finally, a last crazy night in Old San Juan. Did it real big! Dining, shopping, cocktailing, taking in the sights, visiting one of the forts, and bar hopping like the grown-n-sexy do! Visited some cool little spots - one named Aquaviva which was real funky and Supa's kind of steeze - and they had the best mojitos I've tasted outside of Miami. Rolled into another spot called Tantra, a contemporary/morrocan style Indian joint, and we did some of this.
Made our way to some more spots, listened to some jazz, and basically ran free through the Puerto Rican calles...(streets, ya'll) Note: this is where the whole slight public intoxication came into effect.
Streets of Old San Juan
Lovely balcony, love the architecture

Supa says, adios, Puerto Rico! It's been real! And thank the lawd I'm free of the round the clock reggaeton and back to the real world of crap rap...and also, back to the real world, the beautiful struggle, and the refreshing surprises it sometimes brings.....
