vacation [part two]

vacation [part one]

Ryno and I arrived mid-afternoon in Old San Juan, dropped our things by the apartment we rented and headed out to do a bit of site-seeing. We followed a walking tour of Old San Juan to get a feel for the city. During the days following the wedding we checked out the National Historic Fort El Morro, walked to a public beach, toured the capitol building and drove to El Yunque rain forest. We also did a little shopping at Ole´, a hat shop a friend recommended. Ryno bought an awesome straw hat that I'm convinced is the reason everyone kept speaking to him in Spanish.

We loved the rain forest, however, driving without Google street view proved to be more challenging than we anticipated. We followed Fodor's recommendation for a different route on the way back from the rain forest and came across some unbelievably beautiful, deserted beaches.

ps- the streets are paved with blue bricks...it was stunning!
