Old San Juan

For me, there’s nothing like spending a Sunday afternoon in San Juan, particularly the old part of the city. And if that Sunday happens to be New Year’s Day, well then, it’s even better.

Image

I just love the cobblestoned streets,

Image

the narrow alleys,

Image

the steep streets,

Image

the not so steep and slightly wider ones,

Image

the Christmas decorations,

Image

and the street performers at Plaza de Armas.

Image

Aside from taking photos, I also like to sit down and enjoy the performance.

Image

And my sister likes posing in front of groovy old hippie vans.

Image

Some people like walking at Ponce de León Plaza,

Image

but we chose to visit the Totem. My sister got in the way, but it’s ok, I don’t mind.

Image

Right in front of the totem , there is this spread out floor fountain where children love to play all year round. I confess I have gotten in there too, but I won’t be posting that one…

for now.

Wishing you all a wonderful New Year 2012.
