Visited the Arepa Lady last night... was not disappointed. She may very well be pulling out of the spiritual rut that Jim mentioned. More importantly: she'll be gone for the next month! She informed us MOST helpfully that she'll be spending her holidays in Columbia (her first return there in 20 years, apparently) and that she won't be back on her traditional corner until mid-January. Just thought the world should know, so no one treks there in the cold to be dissapointed by a lack of etherial joy.
