This is a place that really gets packed of people. This place is pretty small same as is pretty well known. My mom has been going to since when she was in collage and that was over 20 years ago. So this place is really well known through that area.

Personally I have been coming to this place since I was 12 and have been coming since. Like when I am chilling in the beach with my family or just when we want something fried.

Same as if you want to go to a place that has a beach view and have a nice time with your family I really Really recommend it.

If you visit this place the things that I recommend is “Empanadilla de Jueyes” that is a type of crab, “Empanadilla de Langosta” that is from lobster, “Empanadilla de Camarones” that is from shrimp and if you feel kind of adventurous I recommend the one of shark.

My rating for this place 10/1o

A Gem Accidentally Discovered

My family and I decided to go on a road trip to nowhere through the north of Puerto Rico a couple months ago. The thing was that we became pretty hungry through out the trip, we had seen this restaurant that looked so homey and every time we passed through the restaurant was always full.

This restaurant is in Quebradillas, Puerto Rico, and the name is “Hacienda Don Jando”

The history behind the restaurant is pretty interesting. They have different chairs and tables, because they have been donated from different people that the owners have helped.

But y’all are here to here about the food, am I right? They have a sushi roll, but here is the kicker. The sushi roll is fried, has churrasco (skirt steak), amarillo, rice, cream cheese and mayoketchup. Most of us Puerto Ricans breath, sleep and drown in mayoketchup.

Either way coming back to the sushi. I have never had sushi before, but I can assure you that this is one of the tastiest “sushi” rolls that you could ever have.

Same as they have this dish that has ribs, pork chops and chicken breast filled with plantains. The sides are white rice, beans, ripe plantains and tostones. Making its the ultimate Puerto Rican feast.

The thing that I really don’t recommend is the milk shakes. But the environment really family friendly, the food is amazing and the service is amazing. My rating for this restaurant 8.5

The Cabachuela Caverns

The Cabachuela Caverns are located in Morovis, Puerto Rico. Its composed of 6 caverns where you visit 3 of them. If you are interested you can write them to their web page on facebook “Las Cabachuelas de Morovis”.

The volounteers that are working in the caverns are looking up to teach and preserve the history of the “tainos” that once lived in the caves. Because most of the people that lives on that area of Morovis doesn’t know about it the caves neither the history that are in them.

In this place you can find a lot of different eco systems and the different insects that live inside the caverns.

This place is beautiful and really is a new adventure. I recommend if you go in a tour with them go in some shoes that can get dirty and some long pants or leggings.

This place is to go to if you are looking up for an adventure inside the island or if you want to challenge your self to do something new. This is a great place to take children so they have contact with nature and learn new things about the past.

My rating is 10/10.

The impact of the internet on Education

image: desks and chairs, Pete, license cc

I am a Puerto Rican girl that studied almost all her life in Puerto Rico. Until I moved to New Jersey when I was 16 and it impacted my education. Even though that I went to a privet school in Puerto Rico that started to use computers in middle school and in 9th gradeI went to a public school that I went there was a couple of projectors in the classroom. But it wasn’t compered to the technology that a school has in the United States.

No, I didn’t went to a privet school there, neither I am saying that all public schools had the same technology that the High school that I went.

The internet and technology in education is becoming so crucial, right now the books are in pdf as all teachers are using powerpoint to put the important information about the theme that they are talking in class leaving books aside.

Its great because you are saving paper, same as you are making your class more dynamic. But are we retraining all the information that they are giving us?

For the students that are pretty visual is great cuz it helps to learn and it kind of helps to understand some things. But when they are in math class that flips. They need to be hands on doing that mathematical problem and not seeing some video that the pdf book offers.

A study in Norway proves that kids learn better using books that pdfs. (Study: kids learn better reading on paper vs electronics, Loud.) University students from US, Japan and Germany took a survey where they gave they gave the option between paper or technology. 92% of them picked paper because allows them to concentrate.(Why reading and writing on paper can be better for your brain, The Guardian.)

Making you think is technology is helping us learn or making a hole in our learning experience?

The Internet and technology has their pros and cons. Because with the internet we have it on the tip of our fingers, we don’t need to go to a library to read a book about it or a encyclopedia. Same as we don’t need to be doing lines to use a computer, we have a smartphone in our pocket to write a paper or look up the info. But regarding education it becomes more complex.
