Response from Gabriela:

Thanks for visit my hometown and for your honest review. For me was a pleasure to guide you and be your hostess. Architecture is an essential part of this city and should be discussed as part of the city history and development. I had notice you were more surprised and interested about Puerto Rico political history. I want to recommend you a book named War Against All Puerto Ricans by Nelson A. Denis, so you could acquire better knowledge of this interesting and important historical process. Thanks Bonnie you were very kind.
