  1. Hello José

    This is Mike and I’m one of the correspondents for USk Boston.
    I’m taking my first trip to Puerto Rico Old San Juan next month and was wondering if you could give me any advice on what to see/do/sketch/eat etc It’s going to be a mainly sketching trip too!

    If you have any time it would be great if we can meet up for a sketch or two.

    thanks for you help!

    1. Hi Mike,
      Please let me know the exact dates since I’ll be out from the 23rd of May to the first week of June. I’ll be more than welcome to put you in touch with other urban sketchers in the island if I cannot be here.
