We left San Juan after lunch at Camille's. It's kinda like Panera's in the States. Very yummy.
On our way to Fajardo. We passed through Rio Grande again, where we had gone to the emergency room only a week ago. Enid said we had plenty of time to make our appointment so she recommended to go to El Yunque. She knows me so well and knew that I secretly wanted to go back. So up we went through the narrow roads of the rain forest. We skipped El Portal, the visitor's center, as usual.
I had a really nice view from the top and Enid is creator of the pretty pictures you see posted with this blog. (Hugs and kisses for Enid!) I went back down and we got back in the car to go up a little further.
We drove back down to Rio Grande and started looking for a repair place along the road to Fajardo. We found a Pep boys place and dropped off the car. Well, they took their sweet time to look at the car. So at 6:15pm we had to call the Kayaking Company to tell them we were running late. They said it was no problem and that we were only 15 minutes away.
The window was finally back up (NOT fixed) but we had to get going. At least they didn't charge Enid for the work, which was nice. Half of our group had met us here so we had been hanging out on the parking lot. haha At least we had time to change for the kayaking tour.
Getting to the tour place turned out another quest. There was crazy traffic to the beach and we were not moving for quite some time. But we finally got there and parked the car. To be continued in Fajardo blog....
