This afternoon we went to the Columbus Lighthouse. It was built in between 1986 and 1992 in honor of Columbus’s “discovery” of America.
There are about seventy-five players in Major League Baseball who were born in Puerto Rico, but now live and play baseball in the United States. That got me thinking. Is there a Puerto Rican league, and is baseball as popular in Puerto Rico as it is in the United States. I set out to answer these questions while we were in Puerto Rico.
Today, we went to a music studio to learn about the instruments that make Puerto Rican salsa music so special. When we pulled up to the building, there were no signs, no people, just a plain blue, concrete building. I didn’t look like much, but we went inside anyway.
