Beautiful thread, Dave!

I love Puerto Rico and its people, which will become one-stateside and islands', once we become a state! because-as the Cuban patriot Jose Marti once said-it is mine. Puerto Rico is "my wine,...... sour at times, but still mine".

It has been the land of my ancestors, for thousands of years.

I do love Puerto Rico. I love it because it's called Borinquen by those whom are intimate with er.

I love her because it was their that I met with my great-grand father whom would tell talk stories to me about the days of Spain, a man called " Lincoln" and show me his revolver "hammerless" from the civil war between the states.

I love her because a little frog with intense vocals defies the stereotype of sound vs. size ratio on a nightly basis.
I love Borinquen porque mis padres y mis quatro abuelitos taught me that being a child of her is the most special of blessings that "Papa Dios" gave.

Her culture whether it's her assortment and cococtions of flavors and spices derived from the mix of Spain, Africa and Taino make my taste buds quiver with bliss at all receipes pass down by our ancestors.

I love Puerto Rico because "el Jibarito' in his guayabera sings songs from a place that only God has direct access to his soul.
Los soneros , la clave , el Mabi , la piragua de tamarindo , El Yunque, el arbor Flamboyan y sus mujeres bellas con piel marcada por el sol.

I love her because I can say " Behold I am of her womb, madre tierra de Tito Rodriguez, Ramito, Nydia Caro todos mi primos y primas, tios y tias.

Tantas rasones, so many reasons as infinite as the stars that are visible on a dark night in Las Cordilleras como Utuado y San Sebastian.

Soy tu hijo, Borinquen.

Los soneros , la clave , la conga , el Mabi , la piragua de tamarindo o coco , El Yunque, el arbor Flamboyan y sus mujeres bellas con piel marcada por el sol me recuerda quien y porque somos.

What do I love most about Puerto Rico?

My people?

My history?

Mountain roads?

Coastal valleys?

Urban architecture?

The blend between American and Spanish cultures?

My indigenous blood?

My African ancestors?

The ways we can communicate without talking, with just one glance?

I can go on and on and on....

OMG, I used to like Salsa music, but preferred American Pop, until Marc Anthony broke into it.

Thru him, I have discovered what great musicians and vocalists that genre has.

Nuestro Puerto Rico,

Muchos dariamos la vida por ella.
Eschuchen que el talento de los que han recojido el mundo entero siendo proclamadores de su amor por Borinquen la bella.

I'd hate to sound like I'm bragging, but Puerto Rico does have the longest most famous people list of all Latin America...See and compare it to others for yourself.
