Very useful information! I was born in Puerto Rico and a resident of San Juan all my life. Like living in any other place in the world, it has its ups and downs. Be cheerful, it is still a beautiful world.

Very high levels of infections recently throughout Puerto Rico and its growing daily. But it's growing rapidly throughout the world for that matter.Avoid traveling to any islands no matter where they are because it's a recipe for possible infection. It's better to stay at home if possible and order groceries online to be delivered avoiding the crowds just a tip.

Puerto Rico, U S no matter where its at anywhere in the world the majority refuse to be civil to each other and I doubt that'll ever change,but it should.Overall politics dictate people's lives and that should never happen either.A handful of politicians in every country in the world use their citizens like puppets to change their thoughts and I believe politicians get off on making people's lives miserable while those politicians live very well on taxpayers money. There's no peace on earth unless we're in the grave.
