On This Day . . .
After leaving Cape Verde we crossed the Atlantic and arrived in San Juan, Puerto Rico on April 25, 2018. San Juan is the the Capital of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, an unincorporated territory of the United States. The ship was docked at the foot of Old San Juan, so we walked up the hill and explored the narrow colorful streets of this part of the city. On our journey we passed the Plaza de Armas, San Francisco Plaza, with its' government buildings and the Castillo San Cristobal. On our way down the cobble stone streets the was a statue dedicated to Christopher Columbus.
