Say what? Yeah, I know!! So, we were running some errands, working on another thing that I'll post about soon... when we found ourselves with some time to kill in the little town of Las Piedras. A quick consult with the Google Maps and I added yet another bubble on my overcrowded map of awesomeness!
One of the things I love most about this island, is that there are SO. MANY. talented artists working all over the island. Many of them are giving their time and talents freely, to improve many of the marginalized areas of the island. Using only paint, and their boundless imagination, they are transforming places that were once eyesores, into assets for the people in these small towns.Macromural Pintalto Las Piedras ! We parked across from a small plaza, where we found a few benches and some Indian Laurel trees that are struggling to come back after the hurricanes of 2017. There's an old building called Casa Alcalde, Mayor's house, right on the square, and a pretty little church next door. If these had been the only attractions to see here, I would have gone away happy. But there was MUCH more!
|I don't know what this represents, but it's just beautiful!
|There were a couple of little girls playing in the quiet street... Imagine growing up here!
|These houses are painted all the way around... like easter eggs!
|The stunning light in these colors just amazes me.
|Some are a little more "dark"
|One more look at this one...
|This is worth a second look as well.
