THIS MEANS “PUERTO RICO FROM THE SKY”

Puerto Rico, officially known as the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico), is an unincorporated territory of the United States, located in the northeastern Caribbean, east of the Dominican Republic and west of both the U.S. Virgin Islands and the British Virgin Islands.

Puerto Rico is only 100 miles long by 35 miles wide, making it the smallest island of the Greater Antilles. Puerto Rico (Spanish for “rich port”) consists of an archipelago that includes the main island of Puerto Rico and several islands: Vieques, Culebra, Mona and numerous islets.

Puerto Rico is my country. I was born and raised there. It’s not a perfect place. In reality it has the many problems that any country in the world. There’s economic conflict, politics is the national sport, there’s corruption in many agencies, there’s inequality between classes.

I think of it as a mini USA.

Still when you look at it from the beautiful Nature is possesses, it is a beautiful place.

The song played is called “Preciosa” (Precious). It’s a signature song for Puerto Rico which “talks” about the beauty of the Island and the pride that any Puerto Rican has for their homeland. It’s a “battle hymn” expressing the beauty, the pride and the certainty that, no matter what, Puerto Rico will always stand on its own, no matter the presence of the tyrant.

It’s very well performed by Marc Anthony .. a well known singer of Puerto Rican descent.

    • I’m glad you liked it. There’s a bit of everything. I know you can’t understand the words of the song … but I tell you, they’d give you chills.

      Some of those places are the ones that I used to “hang” with my friends. It’s pretty awesome. ❤ … hugs!

  1. I have heard Puerto Rico is beautiful. We have Puerto Ricans next door and the husband wants to move back but the woman wants to stay near her children and grandchildren.
