126--Puerto Rico: For the Birds
@ CherieSpotting     Apr 01 2003 - 03:30 PST
Cherie writes: Attack of the birds. Who knew that a friendly pigeon feeding could turn into an attack! Birds were pecking and scratching and scraping the bare skin off my Dad's sunburned back.

My Dad? That's right! My dad (Stan) and step-mom Joanne flew in to Puerto Rico to visit us! We've taken them to the local market (where they bought exactly one mango), the rainforest (where they sampled the nectar of the coconut straight from the source) and to the birthplace of the Pina Colada where we sucked down the slushy beverage like we'd never tasted it before.

The Pina Colada is 40 years old this year and we went to the restaurant that concocted the first frothy drink! Later my dad made friends with a local police officer who let us sit on his motorcycle and even shoot his gun! (Okay, he didn't actually let us handle his gun...but he did let us play on his bike!)
