Maggie and I decided to hit the by-ways yesterday to take more pictures for this third part in my series on Puerto Rican Pueblos.

It was a gorgeous day as you can see from the pictures at the right. The sun was very hot and everyone was out.

I was only able to get three Pueblos for this installment because traffic was busy and we were having fun stopping for pinchos and other sights. Pinchos are a favorite here on the island and are made with either pork or chicken. They come on a stick with a piece of homemade bread. Here is a good recipe at the link below.

Scroll down and learn about the next three Pueblos in this virtual tour of Puerto Rico. Be sure and check out Part 1 and Part 2 too!

Cool foe-toes, and I love them all, but particularly Juncos as I have a lot of junc in my yard right now as well.

I really wish my parents would have met in Puerto Rico.

Then, I would in all probability be living there right now!
