While I waited for my daughter, I took a walk around San Juan’s food market. It was early afternoon, and things were quiet. Here is the indoor part of the market, where meat and fish is sold. Stallholders and customers are relaxing in the café:

In the surrounding streets, fruit and vegetables are sold. I spotted this boy kicking a ball around, with considerable skill:

When he realised I was there with the camera, he immediately posed:

Someone has written here, “No peeing”:

Near our home there is a cluster of 3-4 modest restaurants where you can have a good lunch for €8, consisting of a first and second course, a drink, dessert and coffee. It is October, and the weather is just perfect. A nice way to have lunch on a Saturday afternoon:
