Travel Tales – Cave Pop Up

I love clever ingenuity and initiative. Global travels reveal amusing anecdotes, a teeny portrait of existence off the beaten track.

A recent recent glimpse on a jungle roadside in Puerto Rico, near the small town of Isabela. A cave restaurant; ingenious fellow arrives at the cave everyday, sets up his restaurant, condiments graced with the photo of an esteemed relative on the label.

No rent, busy highway, hungry travelers – who wouldn’t stop at a cave restaurant? According to my guides, he leaves the cave clean at the end of each day and is a reliable source of snacks for all who pass by.

Encounters, random or otherwise, are part of the allure of a Journey.
