Our plane flying over the smokey mountains...love to TN!
Taken: Jan 30, 2010
The famous El Convento, Old San Juan
San Sebastian Street Festival!
Mofongo! This was the veggie mofongo, Andy is in the background demolishing the skirt steak version.
The home of traditional Puerto Rican mofongo...Andy talked about this place nonstop for the rest of the trip after we ate here.
Plaza de Armas, outside our hotel. Usually not this festive but they decked it out for San Sebastian.
Interesting sinks in Old San Juan (what do you expect from a 500 year old city, though?)
One of the many gathering places during the festival, up by El Morro
Andy couldn't resist getting something fried. It was a fair, after all.
The interior of our hotel (HOJO Plaza de Armas). Not very wide but very old and beutiful!
Our tiiiiiiiny room (apparently, this is what $225 buys you in OSJ).
Puerto Rican breakfast pastries at La Bombanera. Yum.
Maker of the most delicious fresh-squuzed juice known to man. I don't like juice, and I sucked down my whole glass in about 3 minutes.
You basically can't go to Old San Juan without eating breakfast at La Bombanera.
Hanging around the port
"La Casita" Old San Juan
Looking up at the old city from the port area
One side of the ancient walls that surround the city, built in about 1521 (according to my guide book, anyways).
How the caribbean does christmas trees
Andy trying to absorb some culture in the torrential rain. It didn't really work out that well after we starting to get drenched by both the rain and the spray from the ocean.
Paseo de la Princesca (the walkway around OSJ)

The wall leading up to El Morro (the original military fort).
