The best part about this workshop was that they made me slow down. And look. For like 45 minutes! It was great!
Frank who goes by Paco, an American who retired there, introduced himself and his table, which he called "The Office." With him were two men who worked as guards on Rikers Island. When I introduced myself and said I'm from Memphis, one starts quizzing me about Elvis. "Have you ever been to Graceland? How many times? Was it worth it?" The other gentleman was less aggressive with his small talk, and said that he once dated a woman from Memphis and that my accent brought back nice memories. Yay, Memphis!
