Day 2 - Saturday, 18 May 2002

We woke up at 9am.  There was an amazing view out the window.  We could see one of the old forts that was part of Old San Juan.  We toured Fort San Cristobal in the morning.  It was awesome.  We then walked to El Morro. It was bigger and more impressive than San Cristobal.  Miss Universe contestants were touring the city.  We also saw Ponce de Leon's house.  Hours in the sun today, and we are still pasty white.

The large grassy area was a defense against an attack from the land.  Note how there is no place to hide.
