Sunday Lunch

Our Sunday lunch was at Costa do Sol. More than a restaurant, this place is an institution. It was still windy but one could feel summer in the air.

Emmanuel, restaurant owner and our good friend, told us that the previous night he and a couple of lucky late clientele could witness the most incredible and unannounced partial eclipse over the bay. It was like a private nature show for a selected few.

“You know…” he began. The rest of the conversation was a silent one, with an ample gesture as if telling: “Though we don’t have other advantages, we got this…”

“We know…” confirmed the rest of us with our own small gestures of agreement.

Emmanuel is a young Greek entrepreneur, very found of Cuban music and Cuban ambiance.

I shall not tell you about our lunch or you will get really hungry.
