Trying To Regain Control 

The struggle continues in Puerto Rico. It has become very difficult to secure any type of work due to the loss of Electricity and the limited access to the internet. I’m feeling disappointed because I have not seen any type of financial support from anyone. A small donation via PayPal can help me very much. This situation has brought me to a negative. Since I do not have access to an electrical plant, all my current income for rent, Internet has gone towards eating out. This situation needs to stop. Rent must be paid, Internet must be paid as well. Income has been limited at this time. I’m asking everyone who has access to PayPal to be kind enough to donate what you can. I’m actually going to appreciate all the donations. 

Right now I’m in the process of trying to get back to blogging. Your donations will help me get back on track. I will be updating via my Facebook page with evidence of the current situation. Puerto Rico has been put on standby because of the local AEE not providing timely service to all the island. The donation link can be found on the sidebar under Hurricane Relief Fund. All donations go directly to my personal account. Thanks!

The Lost Island

Puerto Rico has become the lost island. Nobody wants to assist in rebuilding what has been destroyed. This situation has become very unstable. As of today, the island sleeps in total darkness, the night has become a challenge because of the intense heat. The sun rises, yet our faces do not show the brightness of happiness. 

Life as we know it has changed. We have become a lost island. People are driving recklessly throughout our city. No law and order exist here. The darkness has taken over everyone. People here are making bad decisions that cause more of the current situation to expand. 

Many of us do not have the luxury to buy an electrical plant. Eating routine has changed dramatically. 

Sometimes I wonder. 

Why? 

Why are we so delayed in rebuilding our beautiful island? 

Smiles are seen but deep inside we are all suffering the most destructive of all. Our communities are falling apart because nobody wants to focus on really helping us rebuild.

Everything here is about Politics! We are territory of the United States!

A New Day – Sunshine In Paradise

Good morning everyone. Today is a beautiful day in Paradise. Life must continue here as normal. Even though we do not have access to Electricity our daily routines cannot be interupted. I’m happy because we have water service restored. Our communications are open in certain areas in our community. Businesses are in operation. Life continues! 

Cellphone Signals 

At this point there is a 4G signal on the cellphone. Right now I’m actually online in Lomas Verdes, BayamĂłn. I will be updating soon.

Waiting For Maria To Arrive

Sitting here waiting for this event to pass through Puerto Rico. At this time our local gas stations are running out of gasoline. Everyone is buying at the last-minute. This Hurricane Maria seems very dangerous. Many people do not want to evacuate their homes. We are truly living in sad times. This type of situation is stressful for many people because they do not have access to the resources needed in order to survive. Local businesses are running out of supply. Limited Resources are the number one cause of full depression in a crisis. Being mentally prepared is essential in order to survive such a terrible storm. In other words, if we are mentally prepared,we can make better decisions for us and for our loved ones. Hopefully we will make it safe out of this one. Right now, I will be honest, this is a bit scary. I’ve been living in Puerto Rico since 2011 and never heard or seen anything like Hurricane Maria. One of the major worries is the ability to connect to the internet, keep communications open. The other issues are the ability to keep food cool in order for us to be able to eat during and after these storms. Of course I am worried but within my worries, I’m trying to stay strong.

At this time I am feeling the first winds through the living room where I’m taking refuge. It seems like a normal day outside. The winds are not that strong but we can feel it. cellphones are charging, solar charger is charging, flash lights are ready. We have enough food. There is an electrical plant where I’m staying. The only thing that worries me is the fact that sources are limited. Anyway, so far we are doing fine, sitting here and waiting for Maria to arrive!

Back In Service

It has been such a long week. The current hurricane Irma has caused so much stress. I am happy to announce that we are back in service. The internet is back, I’m actually looking forward to blogging once again. I will be updating soon. There is so much to get back on track at home.

Great News From Puerto Rico

Electricity has been established in BayamĂłn and many other Municipalities. Businesses are running on normal schedule. Even though the electrical system is not working at 100%, we have and will be coming back to a normal life. One week without electricity is horrible. Hopefully things will get back on track.
