Photo Of The Day: Santo Domingo

It’s interesting walking on the same streets that were once strolled by Christopher Columbus and Sir Francis Drake…

On the edge of this square is the oldest cathedral in the Americas (consecrated in 1521).

  1. So those streets were paved in Columbus’s day — interesting.

    That’s an old tree — reminds me of what has been cited as the oldest tree in Paris. In a little park across the bridge from Notre Dame is a Robinia (false acacia). It looks pretty senile but is still alive, dating back to 1601… and brought from America.
