  1. Hi Omar,

    I love the kiosko. And if it doesn’t roll away, it would be good protection during a sudden rain storm.

    I got curious to learn more about the design and found a few of these for sale on ebay and craigslist! Search for zumex kiosk. (I often feel the need to know more based on your blog, I don’t think a blogger can get a better compliment than that. Keep up the good work!)


  2. Hi Jim & Nena:

    Thank you for your encouraging comment. It means a lot to me; it’s the fuel that keep me moving along for more pictures.

    I did the same thing, meaning searching the name “zumex” in Google Search. Curiosity is a good thing, me thinketh.



  3. Two in a row? Now I really want my OJ. As a matter of fact, I can have it, thanks to my relatively new citrus juicer. I’d stopped squeezing fresh because it was such a slow process with my aging hands. Now? OJ whenever I want, thanks to a nice little machine. It’s not as heavy-duty as this fellow’s but it does for me.

    Love the cab (?) that matches the kiosk in the second photo.

  4. Morning Linda:

    The concept behind both blog posts is that the first one was of the kiosk itself, and the second one was a person inside and outside the site. Thus “two in a row” as you commented.

    We used to drink fresh orange juice during breakfast, but had to ban it from our diet due to reflux problems. We have to avoid acids as much as we can; “nada” if possible.
