October Update

I’m sitting outside at a very tranquil cafe in Mexico City, Efimero Cafe, one of my favorite little spots here.  There’s plenty of bigger, trendier, fancier, cafes with coffee on par in the neighborhood, but there’s some intangibles here (perhaps the fact that the inside is so small it forces me to be outside on …
