El Morro

A fortress teaches us to have a strong foundation.
This is ¨San Felipe del Morro¨, built in San Juan, Puerto Rico by the Spaniards half a millenium ago. I took the picture last Saturday on a boat ride with two of my cousins. Its a different angle than what you´ll normally see in postcards or tourist guides.

When you look at it, the fortress tells you about the many hurricanes, the gunshots, the fires it´s been through. And still, there it is, in the same place, still magnificent. Seems like everything it went through made it even stronger. Why? Because it has a strong foundation.

What do you hold on to when times are tough?
