El Moro Fort


El Moro Guarding San Juan Harbor


Barb and I lived in Puerto Rico for three years – 1963 to 1966 – some 50 years ago. During our stay we traveled highway PR 2 a number of times from Ramey AFB in order to visit El Moro and Old San Juan. El Moro was fascinating, especially the unique places from which the guards stood watch over the harbor.

I was about 25 at the time with a 29 inch waist. For me, it was still a tight fit to squeeze into the space the guards of that day occupied some 300 or 400 years ago.

I wonder if the powers that be selected only small people to stand watch, or were the Spanish people actually that small.
