My sister and I arrived safely in old San Juan on Friday, ready to enjoy some culture and heat. Since then, we've learned some things about being tourists here.
1. Don't expect to be Hunter S. Thompson when you are really Woody Allen, at best, and Jewel, at worst.
2. Think less about what dresses you'll wear and more about the Spanish you'll need to use.
3. Splitting two bottles of wine between two people for dinner will make falling back (for daylight savings) seem more like springing forward.
4. Forget, for now, about having read Jamaica Kinkaid in college.
5. Go to Waffle-Era.
