The southern town of Ponce (Jan 8-9, 2005)

 

     

     

Drive to Ponce through the central mountains of Puerto Rico on Expressway 52.  

           

           

Around Plaza de las Delicias, Ponce. The cathedral, the wedding taking place there; streets of Ponce, the City Hall (Casa Alcadia).

          

     

Festivities in Ponce for the new mayor's swearing-in. Since Puerto Rico has no President as such, even "small" occasions like Mayoral elections and inaugurations are big events. The church choir, the percussion orchestra and the salsa sur ballet company. Also vendor selling bacalaitos.

  

Good ice-cream and the one of the main craft themes of PR - the tres reas (three kings or magi).

           

Cruza de Virgina, views of Ponce and Castillio de Seralles (one of the major rum barons of PR), also housing an unexpected Barbie and GI Joe collection.
