Old San Juan

The Coqui, or "little frog" is a very popular creature in Puerto Rico. There are 13 different types that live on the island and they are known for their singing at night time. They each sing differently, and are very beautiful to listen to. This one was found in the kitchen during brunch.

Breakfast: A Spanish Tortilla with chorizo, ham, onion and green peppers.
