Day 1 - San Juan, Toa Alta - Nicole

A Grid Destroyed Abandoned House

Some Impressions:
Blue tarps
Garbage piles
Shuttered businesses
Torn roofs
Purifying water half a liter at a time
Smiling resilient people
Dangerous driving with only half the traffic lights functioning
Linemen everywhere
Welcoming hospitality
Bucket baths with filtered water
Cold beer
Home repairs
Debris-trees, crumbled walls, business signs down, electric poles, downed fences, garbage bags
Abandoned homes and businesses
While other neighborhoods flourish
Live music in the parking lot of the grocery store..neighbors gathering, dancing, singing, playing, smiling, seeking some relief, some downtime, some laughter with friends
Attempts at normalcy
