Carol's Daughter Mimosa Hair Honey

reminds me of...

Puerto Rico

will always remind me of...

Puerto Rico
Picking starfruit in Utuado after hours of driving
Hiking to the waterfall of the rainforest El Yunque
Horseback riding with my sister in the foothills
The hotel with it's outdoor space instead of indoor hallways
Sitting outside working on my novel and listening to the coquis chirp
Reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows for the first and second
The streets of Old San Juan: cobblestone, tiny museums, and beautiful
crafts in shops
Tan skin and hot sun
Driving with people who have no sense of direction
The wonderful sandwiches you can get two miles away that can feed
four people for under twenty dollars.
Salsa Congress
Meeting family for the first time
3 generations of women returning to the homeland.
