|Cool, crusty, and unabashedly Bohemian, El Batey is San Juan's most colorful watering hole. Like La Bodeguita del Medio in Havana, its walls are covered with graffiti, but the barkeepers are friendlier, the lighting is lower key, and there are far fewer gringo tourists. It's right across the street from the exquisite El Convento Hotel, and it draws a rather different clientele. One of the backrooms has an old pool table, and that's about the only furniture in the place besides four tiny tables and three cheap plastic-covered chairs. It's Spartan by even Spartan standards. However, they serve great daiquiris for $4 a throw ...in plastic cups!|

A curious and interesting shot. Feels strange the arch to be cut, but nevertheless a good composition with some fine detail. You have the feeling to be standing on that street.
Have a nice weekend
