In this 1st out of 2 parts compilation I'm posting several places all located on Puerto Rico where instead of the 'traditional' paradise we see on advertisements you get the chance to meet a gritty, abandoned side that still inspires beauty and grace (or at least to some).  Read the footnotes for a description of the place where each photo was taken.
