Gonna be looking for some hard to find shaving stuff, as well as some inexpensive rum.

Not much regarding shaving related stuff in the islands.

Is San Juan you can find a Bay Rum that has been produced there for more than a century. It is called "Bay Rum Superior 70". Besides its use for shaving, it was always used for sore muscles ... sort of a local BenGay substitute.

If you are looking for quality rums, you may find "English Harbour 1981" (distilled in Antigua) at a reasonable price. Even then it's kind of expensive but (for me) the best Rum anywhere. It is fruity, with wood and tobacco, backed by a myriad of spices. English Harbour Reserve 10 Year is also good.

From Puerto Rico, and better priced, I like Ron Don Q Añejo 12 años ... it brings back memories of my times in the island. You'll find this for sure in San Juan. Although not tops level it's not a bad rum with a better price.

By the way, if you want a sweet snack while walking about old San Juan, and happen to go past "La Bombonera" (San Francisco street) stop and get a "mayorca" ...

... just delicious with a good puertorican coffee. They have been there since 1902, and their coffee machine dates from 1898!!

My cruise shave kit includes a tube of bigelow, one of Irena's newest samples, a simpson's commodore x2, clinique asb, and dolce&gabbana light blue. Even on a cruise I need a cream and a soap.

Have a great week, an I will see you all in 8 days!!
