ON A PUERTO RICO STATE OF MIND
I saw this video yesterday. It brought many memories back. The scenery surely shows many important and very well known places in Puerto Rico.
The singer is Cuban-born Lissette Alvarez who left Cuba with her parents.
They were very well known in the musical industry.
Lissette followed her parents footsteps and is a very well known singer in the Latino community.
She’s still very active in the music scene.
The video is very well done.
The images show the beauty of Puerto Rico, its progress through time, some of the culture and natural resources.
Puerto Rico isn’t what it’s been made to be … a country in the throes of a bad reputation because it doesn’t pay its bills, because it doesn’t know what it wants to be “when it grows up”, because of rampart crime.
Puerto Rico is a beautiful place which has fought,and continues to fight, to keep its identity, culture, customs, governance.
In spite of all the efforts to strip HER of all of this, the Puerto Rican spirit remains.
It will never be squashed!
VIVA PUERTO RICO LIBRE!
Un sábado más, un sábado más
sobre Puerto Rico, un sábado más …..
ANOTHER SATURDAY OVER PUERTO RICO
Puerto Rico, officially the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (Spanish: Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico, literally the “Free Associated State of Puerto Rico”), is a United States territory located in the northeastern Caribbean.
Puerto Rico is an archipelago that includes the main island of Puerto Rico and a number of smaller islands. The capital and largest city isSan Juan. The territory does not observe daylight saving time, and its official languages are Spanish, which is predominant, and English.
Puerto Rico’s rich history, warm tropical climate, diverse natural scenery, renowned traditional cuisine and attractive tax incentives make it a popular destination for tourists, academics, and business visitors. Because of its location in the Caribbean and history of colonization, Puerto Rico’s culture is a melting pot of Taíno, Spanish, African and North American influences.
