Cookie and brownie monsters

A brownie and funny hair

As a yoga and traveller it’s always nice to leave something behind. An imprint, an emotion. To open doors for people that were closed for a long time, to give them a new inside, a new view. To have contributed to people’s life, to places. I know I have left an imprint behind in Granada, but if it’s a good one….? I’ll be remembered as the guy with a brownie and funny hair.

I’m a chocolate junkie, I know. The darker, the better. I even made my own chocolate, while being in Granada/Nicaragua. I almost had to. It’s hard to get some real, good, dark chocolate in Nicaragua. Strangely enough, because the country produces tons of chocolate. But as soon as the beans are fermented and dried, they get exported. In Granada there is some good chocolate around, but the best chocolate in town wasn’t a bar, but a brownie; made by the Garden Café. Having an amazing green smoothie on the menu and the best food in town – certainly after the vegetarian restaurant Kapuyo closed its doors – the Garden Café was my daily stop. For food, for a smoothie and – I was there anyway – a brownie.

The days I didn’t stop at the Garden Café I would ask April to bring me down a brownie. She was a regular at the Garden Café as well. Not for the brownies, because she doesn’t eat gluten, but for the food and the smoothies. And for cookies. Not for her, but for her (almost) husband Warren; the owner of PURE yoga, health adventure and a guy with a very distinctive moustache. An old fashioned one, with big curls at the end.

He would come in often to buy his own cookies; making him ‘famous’ with the staff as ‘the guy off the cookies with the funny moustache’. If he wouldn’t go over himself, April would pick some cookies up for him. Same for me. I would go in or have some picked up. So as soon as April would walk in and buy some cookies, she would be asked: ‘Is it for the guy with the funny moustache?’. Having me as a yoga teacher at PURE she had a double mission. Picking up brownies as well.  If she did so, the staff would ask her: ‘Is it for the guy with the funny hair?

Going over to the Garden Café regularly I would take a cookie every now and then as well. I liked them as well. Not so much as the brownies, but a change is always nice. But after the staff saw me together with Warren a few times every time I would buy a few cookies, they would ask me:  ‘Is it for the guy with the funny moustache?’ So that’s how he will be remembered. And I will be remembered as the guy with a brownie and funny hair. Maybe it’s not the best imprint I could leave behind, but I have to admit I do like it.
