Luquillo Puerto Rico VolunteerWhy You Should Volunteer In Your New Community:

Today is a “good views” day, so I sit here on the roof deck looking over the amazing vistas of Luquillo.

It looks like more US citizens, like us, are starting to realize that their future may be overseas (or, at least, that it may be out of reach for them). Of course, you already knew that or you wouldn’t be reading this blog.

Plaza Las Americas Mall – A Shopping Day Trip:

Plaza Las Americas Mall

The world’s largest JC Penny and Sears Local arts and crafts A movie theater A Microsoft Store And Starbucks? - OH MY!

Everyone said that it is an awesome mall and that it’s the biggest in the Caribbean – that alone made us want to see it – but when we learned that it had a Microsoft store, well that was it, we had to go.
