On the first day we found ourselves with a car at our disposal for the first time since September, we decided to head to the most obvious destination, Old San Juan. We were amazed at the beauty of the architecture. Every street had its bit of charm and interest, and we were able to take a peak at some of the interiors and courtyards by visiting the art galleries. The settlement dates back to 1521, and subsequent expansion, building, and remodeling has mostly maintained the Spanish colonial style. We spent all day wandering up and down as many streets as we had the energy for, and I took about a hundred photos of cute houses.

This reminds me of The Wizard of Oz
 

And now for some pictures of cats. Cue the Sarah McLachlan.

Jon is not a big fan.

These cats are not dead.
