Old San Juan Puerto Rico

Old San Juan Puerto Rico 4

This is the first time I’ve really brought my camera on a trip so I was eager to take some snaps, but after awhile
I realized that I was barely going to appear in any of them. Oh well, c’est la vie right? Old San Juan was probably
my favorite area of Puerto Rico from an urban perspective because of the history tied to the architecture. When
you venture north you can get away from the tourist spots because the cruise ships dock right at the base of OSJ.
And then if you keep on walking north, you get to overlook the ocean and the big fort! It’s really been a great
trip so far and very grounding to be around friends I’ve known for 20+ years.

My friend Charry who I tried to do an impromptu “photo shoot” with, but we ended up laughing because I was
drilling her like a sergeant (“Take your hand off your hip, don’t smile too much, look relaxed though!”).

    Your pics are rather epic Aliya..What a great eye you have. This is one of the places I can’t wait to visit in the future, and with the depth of your pics, I feel as though I’m already there.

      Wow, thanks Brenda, that’s so nice of you to write! I would recommend going there outside of summer because even with it being Spring, it. was. HOT. I can’t even imagine what it will be like in a couple of months.
