Host: We’re running out of places to show you. Are you sure you want to live in Puerto Rico?
Me: Scottsdale was great but there’s a reason I moved here. Haven’t you read my blog (see Despacito! TPOL Is Moving to Puerto Rico! Effective Inmediatamente).
Host: Perhaps you would like Guaynabo. There’s Costco, a Ponderosa Steakhouse, and upscale neighborhoods. It’s where many of the well-to-do locals live.
Me: (Mumbling to myself) How are there still Ponderosas?
Host: You’re wearing a microphone.
Me: Let’s go check it out, but I swear if you tell me to go to the most overrated restaurant, Bottles, I’m finding a new agent.
After driving around Guaynabo.
Me: So we’re not close to the beach. There’s no golf. And it’s all residential. Where are the bars? Which one of the 3 requirements does this place satisfy?
Host: Do you play tennis?
Me: You’re fired.
*Guaynabo is a nice place to live if you like Scottsdale. And by Scottsdale I’m not talking about Old Town, I’m talking about housing developments in North Scottsdale. The municipality has nice gated communities and the amenities of home. That’s also what makes it boring. Where’s the island charm? Perhaps I will find it in Santurce.
