Our plans have been to wander, as tourists, around San Juan before traveling to Fajardo then catch the ferry to Vieques. John booked us two nights in the Courtyard by Marriott – San Juan Miramar and then two nights at the Holiday Inn – San Jose.
The hotel switch happened today and was a bit traumatic. The events of the day sealed the doom for Pinkie.
Here’s what happened.
Old San Juan
This was John’s second trip to Old San Juan, my first. I was amazed at how beautiful and clean it was. Full of statues, history, friendly people and old world charm. There was something cool around every corner, so, we wandered.
The highlights of our day included:
CATEDRAL METROPOLITANA BASÍLICA DE SAN JUAN BAUTISTA.
Final Goodbyes – Hug. Cry. Drive Off. Repeat.
We had known for months that the day we had to say our final goodbyes to my family was going to be tough. Because our plane was scheduled to take off at 7am the next morning we decided to get a hotel room close to the airport for the night before we were to leave. Afternoon tears are always easier to cope with than morning ones.
