100 Porciento Boricua!

29 Sep

On Sunday, I rode my bike up to North Philly to check out the Puerto Rican Day festivities.  It was amazing, and probably one of the craziest things I’ve seen in a long time.  There were flags everywhere, lots of pimped out cars, and some serious pride on display.  Even though I was only a few miles from Center City, Philadelphia, I didn’t really feel like I was in America.  The dual nationalism and the mixture of cultures I see day after day in North Philly is surreal and I have to admit, I love the fact that my morning commute to work in el Norte feels like I’m biking to another country.  More on that to come.

    Having looked at this I found it to be quite illuminating.
    . I appreciate you setting aside the time and effort to put this material
    together. I just as before discover myself personally using up a little too much time
    simultaneously reading and/or commenting. But so what, it was nevertheless worth it.
