El Jibaro

This friendly, happy man, called himself “El Jibaro”, as in the old days, the farmers and people from the isolated rural areas of Puerto Rico, were called. In modern days, we do not find this in the island, just a few proud men who reminisce those days, still sing the old country songs and wear the “pava” or straw hat once worn in the sugar cane fields. Those days are long gone but still inscribed with much pride, in their culture.
