Café en la Calle

Café en la Calle

Just about anywhere in B’quilla, you can get a cup of coffee right on the street. Vendors wheel carts with several thermoses. Using a wooden paddle like the one you see here, vendors can prepare several cups, large and small, at once. There’s milk and sugar to add in and you can get a pancito (small piece of bread) too. Who needs Starbucks anyway!

Sanity Napkin, Anyone?

After the craziness of the last two weeks, the minor spell-check typo on this placard in our hotel bathroom has taken on new meaning for me. I have been tempted on several occasions to call the front desk and tell them, “Yes, please do bring us a few sanity napkins!”
