I was in Ponce, Puerto Rico, this past November for my cousin Anita's birthday party.  I love visiting my home town and rediscovering it all over again.  New this time around, lions!  Which really should not come as much of a surprise since Ponce is named for Ponce de Leon, hence the lions all over the city.   Below are some lions I found in the main Plaza, all beautifully decorated and colorful.  I could not decide which was my favorite.   You try.  And, for a view of my Ponce and its main attractions, enjoy this video. --mcf

The original leon from the Plaza Fountain

Golden Glory

Look at the mask on his coat

Black and White and Spectacular

The Red Mane is clear even through the fountain

Ponce es Ponce.
Lo demas es parking.



love the lions! The first one has something in its mouth: rifle or spigot?
