Puerto Rico Closes Bars, Movie Theaters, Casinos Amid Pandemic – Bloomberg

A few days ago Puerto Rico opened its doors to tourism. Now it is abruptly closing everything due to the COVID-19 surge. Governor said the reopening might have been premature. Tourists are now stuck between a rock and a hard place. Puerto Rico is doing the backward crab crawl.

Puerto Rico va pa’tras como el cangrejo. ¿Qué pasó? Parece que la urgencia de hacer un dinerito fué mas fuerte que la preservación de la salud publica de la isla? Al dejar entrar a los turistas americanos huyendo de las restricciones de salud en muchos estados donde el uso de la mascarilla es respetado, invitaron al señor virus19 al aeropuerto de Puerto Rico. ¿Valió la pena? Puerto Rico sabe mejor que eso.

I love media and communication, as well as digital technology. I write in Spanish and English, fluent in both languages: speak, read, write, comprehend. I was born in New York, but was sent to Puerto Rico at an early age, where I lived until drafted by the U.S. army. Upon returning from an honorable discharge, I found Puerto Rico small and limited at the time. I moved to Boston where I pursued musical studies and later worked as a musician, teacher, and speech-pathologist in New York. I studied music at Berklee College of Music, Boston, MA, and Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology at various New York City colleges, including New York University, New York City, New York. I played professionally in Puerto Rico, prior to entering Berklee College of Music, and after finishing studies there I played in the 80’s bass guitar briefly, with various latin bands, including the Machito Big Band Orchestra in 1982. I was part of their recording that year. Once I saw the transitory nature of music, I studied speech-pathology and worked in that function after teaching middle-school and elementary grades in the New York City Board/Department of Education. In that capacity, I also worked for the New York City Department of Health as an independent contractor providing therapy and evaluations for pre-school and school-age children. I later worked in the high school setting in that capacity before I retired from the Department of Education. I am now retired and with my spare time, I pursue old, and new dreams, as age is a reminder of the evanescence and impermanence of life.
