Storyboard Text

  • A long time ago, a time before I wore glasses yet I was still as weird as I am today, I was told by my mom that we were going to this place called Puerto Rico for our Christmas vacation. We'd leave in the second week of December, so I'd miss about a week of school.
  • Yep. That's where Raul is from.
  • Puerto Rico?
  • At first, I wasn't incredibly eager on the idea. I'd never heard of the place. In fact, I was a little frightened, because this would be the first time I went out of Maine for a family trip.
  • After doing some research on Puerto Rico that utterly blew my 10-year-old-Maine-kid mind, my hesitation quickly turned into joy. I couldn't wait to explore this seemingly alien place!
  • So it's an island...? And it never snows there? HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?!
  • What to Know About Puerto Rico
  • A Christmas without snow? How is that possible? Will we even CELEBRATE it?!
  • We took our first plane ride to Puerto Rico at the start of December. I was excited, and I loved every bit of it. My mother was a bit nervous, but she managed.
  • It didn't exactly occur to me that when I heard everyone speaks Spanish in Puerto Rico... that meant EVERYTHING was in Spanish.
  • ...what?
  • Hola, ¡bienvenidos a la Puerto Rico! ¿Cuál sus nombres?
  • Even if I couldn't understand anyone, the trip was a lot of fun. Raul's family was very kind and I was able to meet his daughter, Vivi. We went to the zoo, to the beach, to the mall...
  • You didn't even tag me!
  • Tag! You're it!
  • I think about Puerto Rico a lot. It feels as though my trips there were somewhat foreshadowing me living here in Key West. Sadly, we haven't been able to visit in three years. I miss it a lot... but I'll definitely visit it again sometime.
