IOTD …. “🇵🇷 Images of the Day, Very Special …. Amazing Historic Residence in Old San Juan 🇵🇷 …. “!!


~~April 12, 2019~~ 

CASA EN CALLE DE SAN JOSE

 

I found these pictures in the ‘Puerto Rico Historic Building Drawings Society’ a few days ago and was taken by its amazing beauty. 

I was happily surprised when a cousin of mine informed me that this belonged to Richard Carrión Rexach

(Rexach isn’t a common name in Puerto Rico and many who have it are related.)

According to my cousin, the owner is related somehow … as a cousin I don’t know how many times removed. 

Anyway, it’s still a simply beautiful and historic home.

I can only wish the owner the very best!

Panel Discussion—Puerto Rican Florida: Migration, Integration, and Participation


I wish I could be there, I live in Florida … ‘In September of 2017, hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, leaving residents with limited access to water, electricity, and communication. An estimated 135,000 people fled the island in the aftermath of the hurricane—many of them after losing everything. A large share of displaced families relocated to Florida, a state that has recently become the epicenter of the new Puerto Rican Diaspora.’

The Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration, called EHT, is a global network of telescopes that captured the first-ever photograph of a black hole. More than 200 researchers were involved in the project. They have worked for more than a decade to capture this.

The project is named for the event horizon, the proposed boundary around a black hole that represents the point of no return where no light or radiation can escape.

He starts singing. “‘Half my life is over, oh yeah. Half my life has passed me by.’” I roll my eyes, but he keeps going. It’s a bluesy tune and I’m trying to place it. Etta James? B. B. King?“ ‘I wish I could go back, change the past. Have more years, to get it right . . .’”
