Javier opens the gate to the small blue repair kiosk on Calle Luz, at 10am. The simple workshop houses a counter, a repair area and an equipment store. As soon as the canopy is opened customers arrive and business is brisk. Locals bring ventilation fans (ventiladores), cookers (cocinas) for rice, irons and food mixers (mezcladores). All are many years old and many look like they have been repaired several times over.
