Valentine's day

Jameson and I don't ever plan on celebrating valentine's day but we usually do end up getting caught in the celebration and taking some time to rejoice and do sometime special. Puerto Ricans celebrate V-day more than any other group of people I know. Weeks ago I was amazed by the red cardboard Cupids hanging from the ceiling the emergency room. As soon as we walked out of the house yesterday planes were flying in the air with "Maria I love you" trailing behind. Jameson and I started the day with a long walk. As we were crossing one of the many bridges he spied a manaray feeding on some creatures in the sea grass. That was a pretty special treat.
I found a little gold chain in jameson's pocket and turned it into a ring. It fits around my pinky finger and will probably lose it in the next couple of days.

At night i dressed up and we decided to go out to dinner and try this vegetarian mofongo, a typical puerto rican dish of stuffed spiced plantains. The restaurant we were planning to go to was closed so we hopped on the bus and headed to our favorite place, old San Juan. Jameson bought me a nice bottle of italian wine and we watched an amazing sunset from the old fort. Getting caught in the rain on the walk back we dipped into a little pizzeria and ordered pasta and salad. It was good night.

When we got back to the hostel, a package had arrived from my dear mother, full of granola bars, chocolate, and mosquito coils.
