Roadside vendor, Puerto Rico, 1987
quenepas--a small round fruit with a soft skin. They have a short shelf life, so they are only sold on the side of the road. And sometimes in the middle of the road--you'd stop the car at a redlight and vendors on a median would hawk their goods right there.
On this trip we also visited beautiful Luquillo Beach, where a grove of palm trees provides cool shade on the sand. A vendor on the beach, who made these hats of palm fronds, took our picture.
Ah, to return to la isla bonita. Someday soon.
