This street is known as the street of sighs. Not sure why. It is also one of the oldest streets in Colonial, which was founded by the Portuguese who thought that they liked this bit of land a bit more than the Spanish did.

The central square of the old city is just gorgeous with many old and very beautiful trees lining it.

A nice tree. Not a larch...

A rare moment of photographic brilliance... I think I'm overusing the sun in my shots...

Nick would have had alot of trouble with this lighthouse... even I had to duck to get through this thing and I'm not particularly tall.

This is the light at the end of the tunnel... and it is not the light of an oncoming train, phew!

An overview of the main square... the church can be seen in the distance and slightly to the left of centre.

Notice how that shadow is in someone's garden... behind a fence... I risked it all, climbing that fence so that I could stand in that shadow and take that magnificent shot from before... *bows*

The walls of this lighthouse were quite thick... I guess they need to be, it was quite windy.

Now... lets see if we can spot where the original paving gives way to the "restored" side...

Colonial is a simple town... best explored on vespa.

It is also a beautiful town... almost every street in the old part of the city was lined with trees like these... and, as it happened to be a clear autumn day... a picture.
