South By Southwest

Playa Sucia is at the southwestern-most tip of Puerto Rico.  No bathrooms, dirt road access, but still crowded with families.  Next time we go to PR I'm going to rent a cooler so we can take a picnic.  I saw a giant conch shell while I was snorkeling and then couldn't find it again when I tried to show it to Sophie. 

On our way back north we stopped for lunch.  They handed us what I think was the gringo menu--all in English, all expensive.  When I asked for empanadillas en Espanol, they were happy to bring us a variety at $2 a piece.  Thanks Señor Farfan for all that tough love in my Spanish 3 class way back in 1983.
