Is this paradise?

Recognize these two buildings? It's from a Antonio  Banderas movie. ASSASSINS.

I walked the old streets of San Juan in hope I would bump into an old friend. I wore my salsa dress and old shoes; I take random snapshots as if they're mini therapy sessions. I bathe in the sun and press "rewind" with my mind; I think about the memories I have in these sort of places. Hey Izzy Pop, how's life? I'm sorry. I'm forgetting everything. I'm trying to remember what I have promised you. I only remember bits and pieces of our story. Do you still drive that beat up car? I keep failing my driver's license. I am now a strong believer in a good public transportation system. I will be moving to Taipei with my husband. I wish I can say I am doing something with my life. I'm just wasting away. I'm not getting any younger, you know. I just turned 28 years old. I'm also glad we didn't escape to California; Arnold did a terrible job. Besides, I don't think I'll be able to find myself in the city of angels. I still bury my feet in the sand like a child but I now worry about moles and skin cancer. This is life.
