Puerto Rico - Geography
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Do you like to explore? Do you like to find new, interesting places? Imagine a big building made out of stone. This building is very old. It is hundreds of years old. An army once used it to defend a piece of land. Inside this building are lots of rooms, many hallways, and some windows. On the roof of the building are cannons. This kind of building is called a fort, and its dark rooms and hallways are lots of fun to explore!
 
2     Puerto Rico has many old forts. An army doesn't use these forts anymore. In fact, it has been hundreds of years since soldiers lived in them. After the Spanish arrived in Puerto Rico in 1508, they built many of these forts.
 
3     Puerto Rico is a small island in the Caribbean Sea. It is located not far from the American state of Florida. The capital of Puerto Rico is a city called San Juan. San Juan is on the country's northern shore. Many years ago, Puerto Rico was a very popular place. Europeans, like the Spanish, were exploring the rest of the world. They called North and South America the "New World." Of course, it wasn't new. There were already many people living there. But it was new to the Europeans.
