Sorry to detract from my usual photos of New York. Mark and I are still on a brief vacation in Puerto Rico, where it is incredibly humid and sunny. Friday afternoon, we took a trip into Old San Juan, about 20 minutes from our hotel.
Unfortunately the heat and a disappointing lunch experience made our time in town brief. We found the streets extremely clean in this charming old neighborhood. The buildings were ornate, some painted bright colors.
One of many shop-lined streets, paved in blue brick. The stores cater heavily to tourists.
Lush vegetation is everywhere. We were entranced by the little balconies, shutters and details.
Stores and restaurants were located along narrow streets, lined with tropical plants. Unfortunately, the only locals we encountered were the police and shop owners. Oh, and cats, lol, which were very friendly.
Mark and I will be back in New York, Monday night. It's very nice here, I'm starting to miss the energy and bustle of the city. I can just feel my brain and body turning into jello!
A time-lapse image of the same cat? Actually, these three friendly strays are probably brothers.
