Condado Chef

"This portly fellow greats diners at the Latin Star restaurant on Ashford Street in the Condado district of San Juan, Puerto Rico. Open 24 hours a day, you can always find a plate of carne frita and arroz con gandules here. I can't say that this is the greatest kitchen I've ever experienced, but it definitely fills a niche. The fried yucca and tostones are pretty good, and the beers are always cold". Taken by John Grace

Please accept this apology for no photograph today. Normal 'service' will resume tomorrow.

In its place I offer a quote from Swami Vivekananda:

Go on saying, “I am free.” Never mind if the next moment delusion comes and says, “I am bound.” Dehypnotize the whole thing.

...and thanks to 'MG'. You know who you are; it's appreciated.

"He came on the bank of the river, sat in the lotus position and let himself fall into the water. From that moment he was absolutly still, floating amidst the offerings people were doing for the occasion of Mahashivaratri Festival. I was hypnotised… After exactly 30 minutes he walked away without a glance... I went back next day at same time, he was nowhere to be seen. Incredible India…". Taken by Eli Shams
