in Antigua….an almost full moon, stars, a clear sky…shirtsleeve temperature: why would anyone live anywhere else? Da Vinci? their terrace, as is the first level, is perfect…you can see all three volcanoes and even the village of Jesus de Maria on the slope of Agua…however, as with a lot of restaurants these days…empty…good thing that Luis Miguel has an alternate source of income.
if one walks around at night/and even in the day, you ‘ll notice the empty spaces here and there…and then some folks decide to roll the dice and open another business…wtf? case in point…the old Pangea space? they brought in chairs tonight…menu, at this point, is ‘wine and beer’…business plan? oops…name? look, there’s already two very successful bars there, Ocelot and Lava…Whiskey Den is trying but not even with the new decor and larger menu outside, not bringing biz day or night ..why? feng shui? you tell me…
Sin Ventura Bar going the 5q drink route….El Gato Negro empty at 7pm…empty?
..yeah…’got to meet an old time commenter…well, someone who makes comments, ok?….no names, but we’re ok,,,,the longhaired guy with the beard, leather jacket/fringes? holding up the corner stool in Travel Menu tonight…and exactly when was Jerome’s birthday? last Sunday? the message via FaceHole was a bit delayed…or someone was in an alternate universe and parallel parked.
‘been hearing that the Desayuno Americano at Michos has the wrinkles worked out…eggs done consistently well…hey, it’s not easy getting good help, ok? scrambled, yes, any way you want ‘em…they had that down…over easy? wtf?
5th Avenida Norte? Ghost Town….no biz…4th Calle…lo mismo…well, it is Tuesday…but there’s a lot of tourists/students in town…notice how all the gringa/blond students suddenly have escorts? school never quits, I s’pose..dangling participles, and all that.
Riki’s After-Hours venture on 4th Calle? no mas…shut down by the policia a couple of weeks ago…Travel Agent Alice’s new venture on Santa Lucia Sur, La Penca? advertising Mexican food, open 24 hours and no, I haven’t been there, altho we ran into each other in the park yesterday and she crushed/broke my sunglasses…that woman can give good hugs, ok? likewise with diminutive ‘sprite in white’, Dona Gavi…she of the herbal stuff store, same block as El Cazadore Italiano…she has this ‘Love Potion’ that helps one ‘love your self’….my advice? make up a potion that works on other people…she ‘got it’ and i volunteered to ‘road test’ it..we’ll see…for a grandmother, she’s pretty cute..the things I do for science. She said something about putting ‘pills’ in it…Vitamin V?…hmm..it’s kinda like baking pot brownies…just how much do you stir in and how long should you wait after you’ve eaten the first one, before you mistakenly eat #2, just as #1 kicks in…yeah, BTDT, too many times to recount…go out and look up at the moon/stars/clouds…we are so fortunate to live here…yeah…got a smile/wave from the ex/Mayor’s daughter…whew..this town…
