|Typical fall from a castle wall|
The majority of contacts I've made this summer have been telling visitors to descend from the walls. Walking on the walls is not only dangerous but also damages the resource.
There is also a hefty fine we can give for such actions but it doesn't usually come to that.
You may think you are in Disneyland because the castles are so magical but I can assure you that you aren't. Although there is one Pirates of the Caribbean saying that does apply in these situations, "Dead Men Tell No Tales". So make smart decisions out there.
The places I find this happening the most are in the cannon embrasures. These large openings on the castle walls were the holes cannons and soldiers would fire through.

These contacts are good practice for my "verbal judo" and public speaking skills. It also allows me to test out some of the surveillance techniques I have learned at the site.
Just two weeks until my last day working here in Old San Juan. Summer went by fast.
