Cafe La Boheme
Cafe La Boheme is where I hangout ‘almost’ every morning (often times for 3-hours or more). This image was taken this morning during the Labor Day parade, and then enhanced with HDR software and given a surreal painting effect. Seated on the left in retreating order is: Ricardo; Chris (co-owner of the cafe) and Alex with his coffee raised high (co-owner of the cafe). Seated on the right is: is Bad Gary in the red shirt (with arms folded) and Dermot with the white cap. This is the table I sit at while drinking my coffee, smoking my Cuban cigars and eating my breakfast (a few times a week). I do not know the woman coming out of the cafe. Sorry.
This is a common sight on Paseo de Montejo. A man and his pedal cart selling his food, and with his small son coming along for the ride. These little carts pass by all day long selling: ice cream; corn; hot dogs; tamales and all kinds of stuff. Every few minutes it seems as if one will pass in front of our casa in Colonia de Santiago. Each product cart has its own bell. Ice cream has a different bell than pan dulce, which has a different bell than tamales, which has a different bell than agua. Each neighborhood has its own little market, and a plethora of these small vending carts.
