Manuel Sastre can't even believe what's about to happen. He's hot, he's covered in sweat, and he's about to walk out of this Hartford, Conn., liquor store with two six packs of ice cold Medalla Light. It's been way too long.
"Eighteen years," Sastre tells me. "I haven't been in Puerto Rico in 18 years."
Sastre says it's like "I'm back on my island."
