Before crossing the border to Mexico, I had an afternoon to spend at San Diego. I flew in to San Diego at around noon on a Sunday (13-Aug). One of my colleagues Prasad had suggested me to stay at Old Town, San Diego. He believed that I would like it out there and he was right.
Old town is a neat place. My hotel was at a walkable distance from the Historic park that accommodates some old buildings, houses and museums. The entire feel of the place was very festive out there. There were a lot of street stalls selling artefacts mostly from Mexico, there were cafés and restaurants playing live Mexican music. There were candy shops making candies like in the olden days, there were music performances and lots and lots of food. It was like a permanent carnival out there.
I truly loved walking around the streets of old town. Here are some pictures. I would highly recommend people to spend some time there while in San Diego.
