:: Kelinci Series : Puerto Rico : pt 17 ::

with 2 comments

The last time we caught up with our royal-roaming-raging-rallier was over in Venice, but from these recent pics it appears that Mr. Kelinci has moved over to the the North-Western hemisphere, in particular the Caribbean, on a sunny, beautiful, and historically rich island known as Puerto Rico. In case you are just joining us, the Kelinci Series is a photo-journey around the world featuring a troublemaker only known as Kelinci. He has a penchant for snow bunnies, and of course beaches.

The current Commonwealth of Puerto Rico has a long history first as indigenous groups inhabited the 3450 square mile island for centuries; then to the ownership by the Spaniards, until America rested ownership of the strategic asset in the Spanish-American War of 1898. Here’s a nice chronological link of events in Puerto-Rico leading up to those events in 1898. Puerto Rico has even received immigrants from Ireland, France, Scotland, along with slave imports from various other regions of Africa.

Puerto-Rico is the smallest island within the group of Greater Antilles, yet she receives more than a million tourists each year; conversely a massive exodus of workers have come to U.S. cities such as New York (which has the largest U.S. Puerto-Rican population). Yet almost 4 million people inhabit Puerto Rico making it one of the most densely populated islands in the world.  Culturally the island spreads its interesting diversity via Criollo/Creole expressions in food, music, and art.

You can see all the Kelinci pics here.
