A day out in San Juan
Whilst I was at Arecibo I got to spend an afternoon out in Old San Juan. For a Caribbean town I was surprised to how European it looked:
One of the most interesting buildings was the tiny Chapel of Christ the Saviour:
and all of the pigeons that congregate in the park next to it:
The streets were very European:
The cathedral also felt “old”:
We also took a walk out to the impressive (and you can understand why when the USA took the Island they came from the otherside… and why that “pirate” as they call him, Drake, failed) Castillo San Felipe del Morro:
You can see the modern improvements (well modern being Second World War) on the left hand side:
Oh and on the way back to Arecibo I saw probably the most weird thing I’ve ever seen on a motorway… a plane!
At first we thought it had crashed, but it turns out that it was being taken to some town to be turned into a restaurant but a tyre on the truck it was on blew out!
Oh if you wanna see more from this trip just take a look [here]
