    Enjoying Old San Juan

    April 15, 2019 in Puerto Rico ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    We woke up this morning with no idea of what we were going to do. Breakfast first, in a great outdoor cafe. Then a couple of hours circling the governmental capital. Beautiful capitol building, statues of every U.S president who has visited. So far Trump’s statue has not been erected, but we think he should be represented with a roll of paper towels in his hand.

    We hopped in a cab and went to the closed Puerto Rican Museum of Art. But it has lovely gardens, and we got to see the weekly iguana hunt. The guards told us that the have between 30 and 80 babies per year and eat everything in sight. Saw a Botero statue and sat on benches in the shade gabbing away.

    Tonight we have a fancy dinner in a restaurant called Marmalade, and then tomorrow we head home. Old San Juan is a great place for a short break. Lots of walking, beautiful views, and great food.
