Like the photo, PHeymont, but am surprised to see cigarette butts in a cafe photo from Europe. Is this one from the archives.

This is from summer of 2013. The disappearance of public smoking in Europe is slow and uneven; when the picture was taken, it was still allowed on the open terrace of the cafe. This summer, in England, I was surprised to note how much it persists there.

If you smoke under the open sky in New York is it not permitted ?

In fewer and fewer places, Garry. Not in parks, not within a specified distance of building doorways (to keep the smell and butts away from tenants, pupils, etc.) and not in outdoor cafes.

I've only briefly visit Old San Juan once (part of a cruise), and it did fascinate me. Thanks for tell us about this great museum, Jonathan. It does sound like a MustSee! Conde Naste just did a brief piece calling Puerto Rico the new Caribbean hot spot. Here's a link to their piece.

It's in a museum, but is it art? Not intentionally; it was left behind by a cafe customer and cleared shortly after PHeymont found himself drawn to the image.

The colors and patterns are truly beautiful! I'm not a huge textile fan but the artistry of this place would certainly capture my attention.
