the annual cuban family new year’s eve: dominoes, grapes, fireworks, fast cuban talk. with the new addition of a goat stew on an open fire.
maybe we came back to the bodega… no, these people are not related to me.
the best bodega in tampa. my 90-year-old abuela and sister are ordering: media noche and cuban sandwiches, croquetas de jamon and cafe con leche. they were out of my favorite: batido de mamey…
our favorite pastime in tampa is walking along the ditch.
on a walk through the neighborhood. quite a different atmosphere than where i just returned from.
straight to Tampa for the annual holiday family trip. sour nectarines available.
the ladies reunited for christmas [thanks Elizabeth for the picture]
