We love this rural tropical life. Here are a few fun photos from this past week or so.

Easter Time in Puerto Rico


Posted by Cassie

Variety Eggs
A variety of egg colors from our chickens and turkeys: no need to dye them for Easter!

There is always something to celebrate in Puerto Rico with holidays large and small in addition to personal parties for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, etc. All of Holy Week (Semana Santa) is a busy time that culminates in Viernes Santo (Good Friday), Sábado de Gloria (Saturday of Glory), and Pascua (Easter). Nearly everything closes down on Good Friday so do not even  attempt to do any grocery or other shopping. There are processions around the plazas of each city near the churches and then many people head to the beach to party.

Easter

As for us, we joined some friends (thanks guys!) for a nice party at their house complete with slip n slide and an egg hunt for all the children.

Easter time in the tropics is a wonderful moment as it signals that the shift has begun. The tourists have their final hurrah and then our little town of Rincón begins to get a little rainier and sleepier once again. While the excitement of having people in town is fun, I much prefer the slower pace of spring and summer.
