Round about now, it seems as if the world and his wife wants to jet down to Puerto Rico, but what is a truly hot spot destination down there?
Many people that visit Puerto Rico want to experience the magnificent beaches that are scattered all around the island. The white beaches are a perfect get away for a vacation as they provide visitors with an opportunity to relax, swim and enjoy the sun.
Have you ever eaten an Arroz con dulce? If the answer is yes, have you also drunk an Ajonjolí? If these words sounded like Gibberish to you than you may not be a big fan of Puerto Rican cuisine.
Puerto Rican cuisine is a collection of the different cooking traditions and practices of Spain, Africa and the native Taínos. In the 19th century, the Puerto Rican cuisine was influenced by the USA. Puerto Rican cuisine can be found in some countries outside Puerto Rico.
Although there are things that are similar between Puerto Rican Cuisine and Spanish and Latin American cuisine - there is a big difference between them in the matter of cooking styles and the chosen ingredients. Puerto Rican food has stronger taste and it's also more spicy. Puerto Rican locals call their exotic cuisine - cocina criolla which means in Spanish - Creole cuisine (The Creole people were born in Spain and moved to Latin America. They lived in the 16th century).
Now, going back to the dishes that we have presented in the first paragraph - Arroz con dulce is a Puerto Rican rice pudding. The difference between this rice pudding and between popular rice puddings is that Arrouz con dulce is made with coconut milk and coconut cream. Arroz con dulce is a mixture of cloves, ginger, raisins soaked in rum, vanilla, cinnamon, brown or white sugar, heavy cream or milk and sometimes lemon zest.
Regarding the beverage that we have presented in the first paragraph, Ajonjolí is a drink made from ground sesame seeds, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon. Sometimes people add to it ground rice, milk, coconut milk, evaporated milk, allspice, and rum.
In conclusion, Puerto Rican cuisine is an unusual mix of varied traditions and practices. It's also one of the most favorite cuisines and in our opinion, it's even tastier than the most common cuisines like Italy cuisine and French cuisine.
Puerto Rico is an island that is located in the Caribbean Sea (a sea of the Atlantic Ocean).
This island which looks like an illustration to a happy tropic vacation with the family is actually believed to be one of the reasons to the sinking of many ships and to the crash of many aircrafts. Not so happy if you ask me...
The Bermuda triangle is a region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean. The vertices of this triangle are located in the island of Bermuda and Florida.
The last vertice is in Puerto Rico. This uncanny place is also known as the Devil's triangle.
Some of you may not know, but the Bermuda triangle is famous for being a mysterious trap for aircrafts and ships that were never found.
This undefined region has been accused for being the reason to the disappearance of lots of human beings.
The first reference to the Bermuda triangle's mystic activity was presented in an article by Edward Van Winkle Jones, in 1950.
On the one hand, some people believe that the real reason to these disasters is actually supernatural. Those people pin the blame on UFO's. There are also people who think that the reason to the sinking and to the crash is actually leftover technology from the mythical lost continent of Atlantis.
On the other hand, there are people who think that the reason is tornados, hurricanes and other natural disasters.
Nevertheless, the Bermuda triangle has never been scientifically proven to be the reason for this loss.
In addition, insurance companies do not charge higher premiums for ships and planes that travel in that area.
It seems like the saga around the Bermuda triangle isn't going to disappear unlike the people who are still missing.
But, does the Bermuda triangle actually exist or is it just the invention of bored people with good imagination and desperate travel agents?
We may never know.
