Now, on each side of the convention center lie banks of solar panels. My taxi driver stated that Puerto Rico produces all its energy either through solar or wind. I saw a few wind mills but not many in San Juan.
The Sizzler and Olive Garden lie between my hotel and this dock. It left a couple of days later, only to be replaced by a smaller ship.
It was interesting to see mile posts in kilometers but speed limits in miles per hour. In addition, the traffic lights are sometimes out of sink with each other and with the crossing signals.
This is a shot from the end of the hotel, looking towards some of the other hotels in the area. There are one or two tree lined avenues in the area weaving through the hotels.
I love seeing the ocean from just about anywhere on the 10th floor. There are windows by the elevator and at each end of the hotel so you get a good view of everything around the hotel.
On the other hand, everyone here at the hotel is so friendly and willing to answer any questions I had. It appeared the hotel workers parked in a grass area across the street from the hotel itself.
The paved walkway runs from the door, past the bar, and over to the pool where lots of people enjoyed the afternoon.
The area of the pool closest to the where I'm standing is a very shallow place. One could easily sit there.
Behind me are rows and rows of chairs to relax and sunbath. A few of the chairs are in the shade but most are located directly in the sun.
Over all, I enjoyed the conference, the hotel, and the food here in Puerto Rico. As stated earlier, I want to come back so I can explore old town and see a bit of history. There is at least one castle in that area and I've been told one has to see it.
Let me know what you think. I'll be writing about some of the things I learned at the conference. Have a good day and let me know what you think. I'd love to hear from you.
