Which would concern you more travel by ship or flying there?
I have only flown over the area once without ant untoward events.Once on a cruise there was a forced delay in Puerto Rica and we were unable to disembark because a crew member had been injured.He was to be airlifted back to Miami,but no one saw any thing happen nor any Coast Guard people or vessel.

Latinos believed the most strongly in Aliens and UFOs, while the concept of karma was more widely accepted by the African American/African/Caribbean group.
