Monthly Q&A: May 2021
I am so happy to kick off this series with some great questions! Naturally, as someone with a social media platform, I’m a pretty open book who loves sharing the things you want to know about my life and experiences. If I can give advice? I'm happy to! So this month, we’re diving into my thoughts on marriage outside my culture, finances, thoughts on my PhD so far, and more. May Q&A, here we go!
WORLD TURTLE DAY
I am muy emocionada about today’s post because it involves my beautiful Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is actually a group of islands in the Caribbean, a former Spanish colony that is now part of the USA. From the gobsmacking diversity of El Bosque Nacional El Yunque (El Yunque National Forest) to the bioluminescent bays (PR has 3 of the 5 bioluminescent bays in the world: Laguna Grande in Fajardo, Mosquito Bay in Vieques and La Parguera in Lajas), Puerto Rico is brimming with natural beauty for you to discover! Lace up your hiking boots and walk through one of the 36 nature reserves, 19 state forests and five wildlife refuges or throw a swimsuit on and choose from nearly 300 white sand beaches para hanguiar.
Speaking of those beaches… you aren’t the only one enjoying them. Discover Puerto Rico wants to remind you it’s that time of year again: turtle-nesting season! And with World Turtle Day being TODAY (May 23), what better time to talk about the three main turtle species that visit this gorgeous Caribbean jewel?
