Saludos desde NYC
Me encanto el episodio con Marcus y conosco el Rooster. La unica sugerencia es que en el intro dices que la ventana es para los Cubanos... Como no cubano Miamense, ademas de mi familia extraño el cafe, pastelitos, croquetas, etc. La ventana es una de esas cosas que extraño mucho y que no existe en New York. Saludos
