Ponce, Puerto Rico

Ponce is the second largest city in Puerto Rico.  We wandered the area for several days, stocking up at the Cash and Carry warehouse store, (which I like much better than the Kash & Karry supermarket in Florida just because they spell their words correctly), checking out a real mall (with welcome air conditioning), and admiring the beautiful plaza and intriguing and colorful architecture of downtown.

Pretty Ponce architecture
