Games of choice on the street seem to be dominoes and chess.

This street corner game even has an official scorekeeper who shouts out the score at the end of each game and visits his cell phone regularly. Some of us stop to watch and it is likely this is an ongoing game between friends who have money involved.

The men don’t talk much. They slap their domino on the board when they make a play. When they shuffle the dominoes it sounds like a salsa dance 

It is quitting time and the most conspicuous thing missing is rum

When this tournament is over, they will go into the nearby shop and taker care of that business.
