La Puertorriqueña

Festival of Nations 2015 22 (Rapt Attention)

In a glade a short distance away from the stage we've been viewing, a Puerto Rican woman sang, danced and told stories.

We visited Puerto Rico once a number of years ago and enjoyed it. However, the island has fallen on hard times. The economy is bad, the government can't pay its debts and, since they are US citizens, droves of the residents are moving to the mainland.

Love the kerchief skirt that she's wearing. Must have been an interesting spectacle.

She looks like she has a captive audience Bob, beautifully captured here.

This beautiful lady looks like she has personality to spare.
