yyz - San Juan

Started at 3:30 am.
Fairly smooth flights into Miami and then onto San Juan.
HOT - 88 degrees and humid... really humid. add a couple of rain storms... did I say humid??
Found hotel after short diversion by cabbie.. (drive like in Santo Domingo)
While i was writing under the pretext of getting info, Elke went to the bar and the casino and brought back some blood orange and basil mohitos.
Very helpfull staff at Sheraton have directed us to 2 restaurants...
1st - Raices authentic Puerto Rican food - an appetizer featuring plaintains.
2nd - Barrachina, again with local food and flamenco dancers - the home of the pina colada. They claim they invented it - yes i did try one and it was ok - more pineapple than coconut.
Main course was a mofongo with lobster and a pork chop can can.
They do love their deep fried foods here.
I hope they never figure out how to deep fry beer.
Once the dancers were done we headed back to the casino... nope no luck...
Tomorrowing the gravol and das boat!!!
