It’s always good to visit the place you grew up in. Which is why I took a week in May of 2009 to visit my old stomping grounds of Juana Diaz, Puerto Rico.
The one thing about Juana Diaz is that while is a small town, it’s doing what it can to grow as much as it can. The people are very nice, and you get to visit places like the Mines of Guayabal and Villa Los Angeles in Collores.
While there, I got the chance to spend time with many family members, as well as some of my best friends. Including Monsenor Lozano, who spent time with me to talk about the happenings in town, as well as how I was doing.
A piece of advice: never lose touch with the people who saw you grow. Make sure they know what you’re up to, and vice versa. These are the people who will be there when you need them. And you should do so for them.
