The Legend of Mango Dump Road
The house we are sitting, here on Vieques, Puerto Rico, is in a barrio called Monte Santo, which is right smack dab in the middle of the island. There are two towns on Vieques, Isabel Segunda (Isabel II) and Esparanza. Highway PR 997 is a two-lane, cross-island road between the two towns. To get to this main thoroughfare, we travel on a .75 mile stretch of road called La Recta Marta.
We have renamed it Mango Dump Road.
