Today, we took a short cab ride down to Old Town. The walled city is truly picturesque at every turn. Tiny streets, little squares with lots of benches, Bougainvillea dangling out of every 2nd story balcony, it is everything you wanted it to be. Fairly quiet during the lunch hour, we didn’t feel crowded, but we definetly felt the heat.
So we did what any non-stop sweating parent with fading attitudes would do, we found a gelato bar before lunch! And it was everything we (mostly Logan, Brynn and I) wanted it to be. They mixed the gelato right in front of you with liquid nitrogen, added your favorite topping and boom, insta happy!
Then we headed to lunch and decided to cruise atop the old City walls. Logan couldn’t get over the history and asked 100 questions about pirates and cannons. It is crazy to see the old and the modern so close together. We all nearly napped on the cab ride home, but what a special first trip to the Old Town, hopefully many more to come!
Chao for now!
