I wanted to take a photo of BelÚn, the owner of the new Bahia Azul Restaurant, on the beach where Yolanda's used to be (before the hurricane took it away).
BelÚn wanted her whole staff to be in the shot, so here they are in the restaurant kitchen.
BelÚn, who's in her mid-thirties, was born in El Rebalsito, and moved here about fifteen years ago. BelÚn used to make and sell antojitos on the street in front of the Casa Ejidall in La Manzanilla.
Her mother had a restaurant in Rebalsito, and the family also worked at Tecacatita beach before Villalobos and his thugs demolished all the restaurants there.
It's a lovely place that BelÚn has created here on our beach, and the kitchen is turning out some delicious food. We have become addicted to their breakfast burrito stuffed with scrambled eggs and bacon, accompanied by beautiful guacamole and 3 homemade salsas. The burrito is made by Cristal, an amazing cook.
In the photo left to right: Kenia, BelÚn, Cristal, Brenda, and Blanca. What a nice crew!
