Boricuuuaaaaaaa pa que lo sepa. White rice and beans on the dinner plate got yelled at by your mom for being 10 minutes late . el coqui you hear at night the coquito you drink during Christmas time . Los timbales hasta La conga musics in our blood el ritmo nos Levanta. Familia Es todo and when times are rough we count on each other . From el morro to el yunce Los boricuas sabemos hacer arroz con dulce .frankie Ruiz to Marc Anthony all these salseros will go down in history .the beautiful beaches in San Juan sipping on that Puerto Rican rum , dominoe games with the old timers yelling CAPICU ahora ganas tu. Puerto Rico se llama la isla del encanto y cuando muere alguien rezamos a nuestro santo. La mujeres son bella y los hombres son guapo. El orgullo de ser boricua. No es tu nacionalidad tipica. Sabemos cocinar y bailar hasta la muerte será boricua

Am I seeing things right now?! Puerto Rican??? I'm a cross of Arecibo (my Mother) & San Sebastian (my Father), born & raised in Jersey. Frankie Ruiz!? Are you serious?! "Quiero cantar de nuevo caminar! Y mis amigos puedo visitar"...I think I got that right. Holy crap that's awesome! Frankie Ruiz, Hector Lavoe, El Gran Combo...viva la Salsa. =)

As was my Dad too...a lot of 60s/70s Salsa. My Mom was more into the Boleros, but she loved her Salsa & Merengue. So, I definitely understand this. Que bueno es! :)
