Javier’s apartment is in the charming old part of the city, where he seems to know just about everyone. It is on the second floor over a tetaria (tea house) that plays great music and occasionally it’s live. The window in my bedroom overlooks the interior of the cafe so I can enjoy the party in my PJs.
