Home, Home Again...

Back to New Mexico and normalcy after a week in Condado, San Juan, Puerto Rico! We had an oceanfront room in the Marriott, small but nice. And the view was hard to beat. This was the view from our balcony:

It was so nice to get away. The weather was perfect--consistently in the 80s and only a couple of sun showers. We didn't do as much sightseeing as we anticipated--I got some inner ear "thing" and spent Monday and Tuesday feeling a bit under the weather, so I mostly hung out by the pool. Yes, life is rough! ;) My equilibrium is still a little off but manageable. DH was ok with hanging out as he wanted to spend time relaxing and de-stressing from his job.

We did go to the Bacardi factory:

 And yes,  they gave samples after the tour.

We tried the Select version on the rocks. Wow, good stuff! It was aged for 8 years and was so smooth. A sipper, not a mixer.

Afterwards we visited the colonial fort in Old San Juan. It was enormous! Being there really helped me appreciate how important Puerto Rico was for the Spanish Empire.

We had some delicious meals while there, too! Unfortunately, it was all over too soon, and we had a long day of flying on Friday. Ugghh, making connections in Atlanta was no fun. We got in late Friday night and I still haven't finished unpacking even though I only brought a carry on roller bag and small backpack. Lack of motivation since those clothes aren't needed yet.
