home again

This is from our visit to the rain forest in Puerto Rico. Vieques was beautiful but with all the complications of a little-developed island--we left a day early when our house ran out of water (actually, there was a second cistern for when the first one was empty but the pump failed). The most spectacular thing we saw was un-photographable--a bioluminescent bay. In the dark of the moon we paddled kayaks out into the bay and then swam, stars streaming from our arms when we raised them from the water. We could see the glowing trails of fish swimming by.
