Photo: Chess During a Blackout
Two guys were sitting playing chess under a tent at the edge of a park just up the hill from Santo Domingo's Malecón. Everything else in the area, including the restaurant we went to, Bahia, pretty much lay shrouded in darkness broken by intermittent candlelight. I should have asked who was winning, but I was trying not to trip and fall into one of the deep gutters.
