One day we went for a walk and took a bunch of pictures. My favorite was the one of a water cannon on ruins. This building was built in 1694. We could see a pretty garden through the gate. The water cannon was actually a rainspout. It looked like an animal. There was a plant growing on the waterspout. It looked cool.

One day dad and I walked to Cerro de la Cruz or Hill of the Cross in English. It wouldn't have been nearly as fun without my dad. We got to take some cool pictures you can look at. It was a really long walk, if I hadn't brought my Camelbak water bottle, I probably would have melted into a puddle. We got to the top to be greeted by a great view of the entire city and ....bugs. From up there we saw a bunch of red roofs, about 4 ruins and a dome that looked like a space observatory. We could almost see our apartment complex but some trees were in the way. The girls stayed home - I don't know what they did. We had the best dinner called Fiesta Casserole or Dirty Rice whatever you prefer to call it. It was a fun day.

The Cross on the hill is a great point of reference - due North from anywhere in Antigua.
Hope you enjoy these views and thoughts on exploring Antigua.
