  • Cruising around Havana, you get a first had look at what a freeform socialist dictatorship can do to a city. Victims of nearly half a century of neglect, throughout Centro Habana and La Habana Vieja the facades of once great structures literally crumble right in front of your eyes to expose their inhabitants’ decorating taste.

  • Ruins of the Hospital San Nicolás de BariThe first hospital of the New World now is a neglected ruin right in the colonial area of Santo Domingo - easily accessible and crowded by pigeons.When the Spaniards landed on Hispaniola (Little Spain), as they called the island, they started to build the provisions as they were used to. In 1504, Fray Nicolás de Ovando, governor at the time, ordered the construction of a health centre, and it would serve as such until the mid 18th century. It actually had a double function: it also served as a church, and was probably the first stone church in the New World. According to reports, the central nave of the Hospital San Nicolás de Bari, which cross shape is still visible, was used for religious purposes, while the lateral naves and the area behind the transept was used for care of patients.http://www.traveladventures.org/continents/southamerica/images/hospital-nicolas-de-bari01.jpg

  • El Morro from San Cristobal, courtesy of Elizabeth Lawdenski, Puerto Rico, 2009 On the tip of Old San Juan, you&apos;ll find Fort San Felipe del Morro, better known as El Morro. A 16th century citadel constructed to protect the town from attack by sea, El Morro is one of the highlights of any tour of the old city, a rocky web of tunnels and barracks, towers and prisons. Probably the most famous monument from Spanish colonial times, the fortress stands out on a rocky islet, forever a reminder of a different age.Local version of the story behind Rainbow Row’s colors:Many local Charlestonian’s tell a different version of Rainbow Row’s history. They say that each house on Rainbow row was painted a different color based on the importance of who lived there. They did this, so that these people could be found easily in times of emergency.For example: Doctors were scarce in earlier times and were often called on at all times of night. So, if there was an emergency and the doctor was needed right away, one could just shout “Go get the doctor, He lives in the Pink House!” This way the doctor could be notified of the emergency quickly and come to the rescue.http://blog.rehava.com/why-are-the-houses-of-rainbow-row-painted-different-colors

  •  The Parque de Bombas de Ponce (Old Ponce Fire Station) was built as the main exhibit pavilion for the 1882 Exhibition Trade Fair. Architect Lt. Col. MaximoMeana of the Spanish Army designed the pavillion; he later served as Ponce&apos;s mayor. In 1885, the building was dedicated as Ponce&apos;s official firehouse--a function which it served for more than 100 years. The woodframe, Gothic structure exhibits a Moorish influence and is painted in bands of red and black. Today, the building serves as a museum honoring and commemorating Ponce&apos;s firemen.Photo courtesy of Elizabeth Lawdenski, 2009

The green iguana ranges over a large geographic area, from southern Brazil and Paraguay to as far north as Mexico and the Caribbean Islands; and in the United States as feral populations in South Florida (including the Florida Keys), Hawaii, and the Rio Grande Valley of Texas.A herbivore, it has adapted significantly with regard to locomotion and osmoregulation as a result of its diet. It grows to 1.5 metres (4.9 ft) in length from head to tail, although a few specimens have grown more than 2 metres (6.6 ft) with bodyweights upward of 20 pounds. Iguana iguana possess a row of spines along their backs and along their tails which helps to protect them from predators.[12] Their whip-like tails can be used to deliver painful strikes and like many other lizards, when grabbed by the tail, the iguana can allow it to break, so it can escape and eventually regenerate a new one. The Moche people of ancient Peru worshipped animals and often depicted Green iguanas in their art.[40] The Green iguana and its relative the Black iguana (Ctenosaurasimilis) have been used as a food source in Central and South America for the past 7000 years.[4] It is possible that some of the populations in the Caribbean were translocated there from the mainland by various tribes as a food source.[4] In Central and South America, Green iguanas are still used as a source of meat and are often referred to as gallina de palo, &quot;bamboo chicken&quot; or &quot;chicken of the tree,&quot;[6] because they are said to taste like chicken.[41]
