Maria, if you are reading this . . .
Maria, I remember you talking about La Perla. I’ve been looking for you here. I spent the night under the deck of some guy’s shack — Carlos Nimez? Anyway, I’ve got to find a bed for tonight. Before I walk into Old San Juan, I just want you to know I really miss you. I found that music video about La Perla you told me about. I saw you in it, in the dance scene here on the beach. Ruben Blades is amazing, and Calle 13 too. I love your music. I love your island. Find me, okay?
