Borinquen: 'Isla Del Encanto'


Puerto Rico, a country full of natural beauty, good music, great food, lovely people with an amazing capacity of making you fall in love with it. Needless to say, I am in love with this small island not only because it is beautiful but also because it has given me a home away from home.

Puerto Rico is also known as 'Borinquen' and it is the 'Isla Del Encanto', which means enchanted island!


My husband, Joseph O. Prewitt Diaz is an apt ambassador for his country. His stories about his motherland made me like it, years before I ever visited it. So, when the option of moving to Puerto Rico was presented to me, I agreed without much resistance.

Although no place on earth can make an Indian forget the beauty and warmth of India, Puerto Rico has embraced me and my son with divine love. The island has us enchanted.

I dedicate this blog to this little island for its great culture, wonderful landscapes and marvelous heritage.  Thanks, Puerto Rico for letting me be a part of you.
