The owner of the local Social Club in San Blas told me “if you can make it through three nights in San Blas, then you’ll definitely return.” Well, I spent the better part of four days exploring the town and I don’t doubt his words. I plan to return.
Fort of San Basilio
On my decisive third day, I decided to visit the old Spanish Fort on the hill. Just a few kilometers from the main square, it was an easy drive. And with 10 peso entrance fee was good for the entire day, I decided to return at sunset. Good choice.
Among statues, cannons, and history, I enjoyed the sun’s descent. From atop the hill, I took a few photos to mark the memory, but then started to mentally travel back in time.
I wondered what life was like when the Spanish occupied the fort. Their world, that world – so different from mine. But even with so many differences we now shared something in common. We shared the majesty of the sunset from San Blas.
Happy Sunset Sunday.
