Again from the archives, an old Agfacolor slide, showing the colonnade in the Jardin in 1969 on my first visit here. Still almost indistinguishable from today other than for the food stalls between the columns. I think that dog is still there. In those days the bus dropped you off just to the left, right in front of the Parroquia. Many of the now familiar streets were unpaved, and if you had had the ready cash you could have made some smart investments and amassed a real-estate fortune.
