Puerto Rico, Day 8 - WCMN
Today we took a short ferry and taxi ride to the "Cathedral of Rum"--the Bacardi factory near San Juan. A free tour gave us an interesting history of the Bacardi brand which was founded in Cuba in 1862.
Of course, no tour of a rum factory would be complete without actually drinking it!
That evening we took a train to the José Miguel Agrelot Coliseum to see....
...Ricky Martin! His world tour was kicking off with four dates in his hometown. The show was damn entertaining even if I had no idea what he was saying (or singing for that matter.)
"Delta 107" WCMN was a CHR station licensed to Arecibo, Puerto Rico. WCMN is now branded as "107.3 Mi Emisora" ("My Radio Station") and still plays contemporary hit music.
