A note from Juan:

Happy New Year SDTC! 
I’m back! I had a great vacation! Hope everyone enjoyed their holidays!! 

Let’s play this game...
6 truths 1 lie
Guess which is the lie! 
Flying out of San Diego, the flight was returned after 30 minutes in the air and had to switch planes. Missed my connecting flight in Miami. 

Experienced a 5.3 earthquake in Caracas.

Both Elevators broke down in the 15 floor building we stayed at the beach. Our room was in the 13th floor!

Got bit by an iguana on my toe while napping at the beach. Ouch! 

Played tennis twice. One doubles match, I played with my son on my shoulders to handicap my brother in law and his cousin. 

Got food poisoning New Years Eve. 

Back from Venezuela, Got sent to secondary inspection because they were looking for a Juan Garcia. Not me obviously! 

Be sure to let Juan know your answer when you see him.
