Inside View at La Naranja Pelada Restaurant

la naranja pelada - restaurante

Guy’s description of the restaurant fit it to the t: “…wood-panelled and decorated with specimens of local ‘game’ such as snakes, turtles and armadilloes.” La Naranja Pelada restaurant falls into the tacky category of restaurants or bars that have an exotic, underground sort of, appeal for intellectuals and ordinary people alike. Another example of this is the bar El Olvido in Guatemala City. I dislike most of what I saw inside La Naranja Pelada (peeled orange), but especially the animal decoration on the walls and bar. Also the full-size ‘Marlboro Man’ poster is of poor taste in my book. This weekend We rented the film Thank You for Smoking directed by Jason Reitman and there was a chapter about the Marlboro Man who was dying from all the years of smoking. Talk about synchronicity.

Just about now, many of you may be asking where I am going with this mini-series, right? Well, be patient. I am almost there… to be continued.

    Pues I agree with Jerry B that it seems our hero will sacrifice himself for the good of his readers/voyeurs (co-voyeurs? or if a voyeur stalks another voyeur would he have 100 years of mercy?) and will be obliged to taste a nice lime-soaked ceviche. Poor, poor Rudy. 🙂
