Hola from San Juan!
After lots of traveling and continual ear popping, Ryan and I are finally settled in at the Caribe Hilton.
The hotel has exceeded my expectations. Though I must admit, my expectations were fairly low considering we got this room through a conference discount. Ryan is here to cover the Razorbacks in a tourney, and I came along.
Our hotel room is on the top floor of a 20-story tower and it faces the ocean. (Above is the view from our balcony.) Our room was recently renovated to include a huge walk-in shower and double-sink vanity.
The only downside is that I was hoping to get away from all things Razorback, but it seems like everywhere I turn there is someone in Razorback gear talking about Houston Nutt. I'm even getting sick of talking about the Jayhawks. I need a break!
