San Juan

San Juan, Puerto Rico. Day 4. Today was an incredible day! This day made the trip worth it. It began casually enough. Got up around 9:00 a.m. and went to the Windjammer for breakfast. Around noon, the ship got into Puerto Rico, where I disembarked for a one hour bus trip to a ranch on the outskirts of the Yunque Rain Forest. Here I took an absolutely incredible two hour horseback ride into the Yunque Rain Forest. Because I am an experienced horse rider, I was given a very spirited horse name Napoleon. He lived up to his namesake. He constantly wanted to take off at a gallop and I was allowed to take him out several times for a very spirited ride. This is so unlike in the states where liability laws rule. I choose not to do the regular site seeing tour since I have already visited Puerto Rico before and had already done that. I did not regret this.

Tomorrow, St. Thomas, where I plan to do some serious shopping.
