The walk is led by Adrian Beales, an Australian sales director for Lifeafar, a company that offers real estate investment options for people from abroad. Behind him is a group of 20 investors. They left El Convento hotel on Cristo Street in Old San Juan after the second day of the 2019 Lifeafar Investors Conference: three days of talks — from April 23-25 — about the advantages of investing in Puerto Rico. At 4:30 p.m. they go down Luna Street toward San Francisco Street under a clear sky. Upon reaching Plaza Colón, they form a semicircle, some of them cover their face from the sun and contemplate building 405.
