As mentioned in my other posts about hiking in the rainforest and the resort and beaches, my wife and I took a trip to Puerto Rico for our 10-year anniversary.

We spent one day walking around old San Juan. It is truly a beautiful city.

This painting is on the outside of the Catedral de San Juan:

The scale of the city wall and fortifications is immense compared to anything I had seen before. Structures such as Castillo de San Marcos in St. Augustine, Florida pale in comparison.

Here is Kristen outside the massive city wall:

There are many many of these sentry towers scattered around the city wall and forts:

Cemetary inside the foritifcations near Castillo San Felipe del Morro:

View from Castillo San Felipe del Morro, the fort which defended San Juan harbor from sea attacks:

Immense fortifications that are part of the Castillo del San Cristobal, the fort which was built to defend against land attacks and was the largest fortification built by the Spaniards in America:

Kristen's attack is foiled by her getting caught in one of the dry moats:

Kristen liked this sentry tower:

Kristen also liked shopping in the many shops we found. I think this was her favorite:

We rounded out our evening at Old Harbor Brewery, a fine micro brewery located near Plaza de Hostos. I sampled the Old Harbor Pale Ale and it was good!
