Boca Chica

Puts me in mind of sunshine and ice cubes.

True Colors

Malta India, top shelf, far right

Nasty stuff, that malta. Tastes like a sweet, thick, dark unfermented Guinness stout. Cloying! It's popular in the Caribbean, though.

Close to Home

I'm a Navy reservist whose girlfriend is from San Juan (Bayamon is a suburb now). I was there in March and had the privilege of drilling with the Navy at Fort Buchanan. This is the Army base that the man lost his store to.

Philco Radio

That's a nice 1940 Philco Model 40-140 radio on the shelf!
