10:19 p.m. I plan to write a blog entry on the plane tomorrow about a murder suicide. It will give me something constructive to do en route to Puerto Rico. (Note: Everytime I write "Puerto Rico", what I really mean is... "Pwwwerrrto Rrreeeco!")
My flight will get in at 2pm, so I will spend the afternoon getting my bearings. After I check into my hotel I might just drive out to my first case since I don't relish the thought of getting lost in the middle of Puerto Rico (Pwwwerrto Rrreeeco!) at 4am. Of course, it might be worse getting lost in Puerto Rico (Pwwwerrto Rrreeeco!) at night.
Anyway, I don't plan on spending much time in my room while I'm there. I will be taking in the sights. Going to the beaches. Taking a tour of the rain forest (the only one in the U.S., folks. At least that's what I read. What about Hawaii?). Maybe I'll even learn how to scuba dive. And though I doubt very much that my wireless will be up, I still intend to take plenty of pix and post them daily along with updates on my cases.
Speaking of cases, I DO have to work at least a little while I'm there. I've been mapping out directions to my three surveillance locations. They are all on the other side of the island from San Juan in VERY remote areas. So remote, in fact, that there are no maps to the houses I'm looking for...just vague references to crossroads "near by". I am thinking I'll end up doing my surveillance in the middle of a marijuana field somewhere.
