Why "extraordinary" you ask? Because, I rarely wear black and white and my visit to Old San Juan was, well, EXTRAORDINARY. I implore all of you my lovely readers if my pictures doesn't convince you, please google image or just click on THIS link and remember to pick your jaw of the floor, and try to fight the urge to whip out your credit and book the next flight to Puerto Rico.
Even though I have visited Puerto Rico multiple times, I have never been to Old San Juan, yes it's true. Every time I am in Puerto Rico I am usually there for a shopping trip, a concert or to catch a flight (it's a lot cheaper to flight to mainland US or Europe from Puerto Rico or St. Thomas) and I have never ventured into Old San Juan. For the Easter weekend after a little mix up with an appointment my husband and I decided to explore Old San Juan, and let me tell you, it's unreal! It's beautiful, it's breathtaking, it's all kinds of wonderful and a lot more. I fell in love with the history of the area and the brightly colored buildings that line the beautiful blue cobblestone streets. I can go on and on about Old San Juan!!
We visited the Two Forts, El Morro and San Cristóbal, both are a wealth of history and everything is so well preserved. Since it was Easter lots of families were out flying kites and having picnics and my husband and I flew kites, ate food we wouldn't usually eat, but we let go and we had an amazing time. It's an absolutely beautiful place and I can wait wait to go back.
