Puerto Rico Vibes

One of the many things that people enjoy doing is traveling, and what better time to do so than during the summer? Most of us perceive summer vacation as a time to catch up on our sleep or even just to watch television and do nothing more, but it’s the perfect time for parents to take some time off their busy regular schedules and just enjoy the time with their children.

One of our fellow Red Devils decided to hop out of bed and travel to Puerto Rico! Airam Moleta, a student of the Junior class, described her experience for the week that she spent there. The reason for her trip, Airam said, was to simply explore a new place and culture. “My family and I are very accustomed to our Mexican culture and its very nice to view, experience and understand something very new to us.”

She also mentioned how amazing the food was and that it was definitely one of her ultimate favorite things, other than the beach, of course. Everyone who hasn’t been living under a rock is at least somewhat familiar with how great Puerto Rico beaches are; therefore, you might even imagine Airam’s happiness while describing them. Although her trip was enjoyable, she explained how much chaos there was in the streets. She said, “The sidewalks were destroyed. It was very difficult to walk through the sidewalks without looking down to watch your step. Because of this, I witnessed many accidents.”

However, she was delighted by all the people and how well they were treated in every location they visited, and she would love to go back and relive the experience.

Just like Airam, we all have trips and dreams of trips to come. And each and every one is worth sharing as we Red Devils explore the world beyond SUHi’s walls.
