Some places will always have a special place in your heart. For me, it’s Puerto Rico. This is my Puerto Rican love story.

 

I was born and raised in Miami. My father is from Guatemala and my mother is from Puerto Rico. As I kid, I went to Guatemala almost every summer but I only had been to Puerto Rico once when I was a baby. Needless to say, I didn’t remember anything.

 

Then, finally, I was able to visit the small island for a few days. And I fell in love. It was a short stay, so I can’t wait to go back and get to know more of this beautiful island and my heritage.

 

A Puerto Rican Love Story

For years I wanted to see you.

I wondered if I’d ever get a chance.

And then for a brief moment, we were together.

And it was a wonderful romance.

But our time together was over way too quickly.

It felt like such a tease.

Will I ever see you again?

For now, only in my dreams.
