Neighborhood watch - Old San Juan, San Juan, PR
The cobbled stone is light blue in colour, may be that's what makes the pictures ever so fairy talesque. Brightly painted houses, narrow sloping streets, the ocean in the background, light music (or is it just the language?), tourists all over, pedestrians, bikes, cars, all scrambling for right of way. Turn a corner and you encounter a typically European square, turn another and there is a hole-in-the-wall crafts shop. Take in the Spanish, gobble up the mofongo, sip on the mojito while you talk to the American restaurant owner. Think of asking him why he moved from New Jersey to San Juan; think again while looking at the sea right ahead; don't ask.
