A bit of photojournalism.
We got there too late to see the house - & almost too late to walk around the garden, as in the guard was locking the gate as we were entering. There are several gates, the lock all but one 1 hour before closing. Luckily Mr. Calico Cat found the one that remained open so that we would be able to exit.
The bottle in the corner had a hole cut in the side & had some cat food - there was a water bowl too. :o) The gate however, was locked. All of the cats that we saw in the garden were altered. You could tell by the clipped ear.
Then we went to the fort:
We were too late to tour the fort, but we could walk around...
And a bit of old San Juan:
Blue bricks - slick as all get out!
(This place has been on FoodTV a couple times for coffee & a pastery called Majorca. We missed our opportunity - we were being shown around by a couple of old ladies - when we returned it was too busy...)
I like how the disdressed bits show some of the old facade.
Dominoes is quite the past time in Puerto Rico.
There was a carnival/festival of some sort going on... (It happens the 3rd week of January every year & has something to do with Christmas.) There were dragons in this bunch... My camera was not clicking as fast as I would have liked...
The noise was unbelieveable. Apparently Ricky Martin gave a free concert later in the evening... (We found that out later from our guide in the rain forest. I should have asked him more about the festival.)
While finding a place to eat dinner we passed by another group that were getting ready to parade through the streets with FIRE! (The had not lit the batons yet.)
