Ponce, Puerto Rico

We stopped in Ponce a small city on the south side of the large island of Puerto Rico. The city is not a tourist destination and doesn’t have much to offer to visitors. However, sailors can find everything they need to fix their boat. Puerto Rico being under the jurisdiction of the USA its development followed strictly the North American rule number 1; if you want to do anything you need a car! Thus we rented a car and a marina and this made our life way much easier to get the boat fixed and to go to the city to replenish our food reserves. Of course we use the car to visit Puerto Rico at the same time. Danielle got quickly connected on the Internet and started reactivating the world economy by ordering tons of boat parts and other stuff we needed. UPS and Fedex are going to be busy the next couple of weeks!
