Preciosa residencia en la Caleta de Las Monjas. Viejo San Juan.

Esta ventana, muy rústica de por sí, es parte de un negocio de limber localizado en la Caleta de las Monjas , frente a La Rogativa. Pero es muy famoso por más de 30 años. Este se ubica en una residencia ,donde solo lo pides y desde la ventana te despachan los típicos limbers de Puerto Rico. Si no eres de Puerto Rico, he aquí la razón e historia de su nombre. Cuando en 1928, Charles A. Lindbergh, el primer aviador en cruzar el Océano Atlántico en avión, sin escalas y en solitario, visitó a Puerto Rico en un viaje de “Buena Voluntad” que comenzó en Suramérica, Centro América y culminando en el Caribe. Al bajar del avión, y sentir el calor de la isla, fue agasajado con un jugo o refresco de frutas congelado que gustó mucho al piloto. Al preguntar por el nombre de aquello que le había sentado tan bien, decidieron bautizar el dulce aperitivo con el apellido del aviador. Aunque otras voces de la historia hablan de la frialdad emocional del piloto ante el recibimiento de los puertorriqueños le ganó un reconocimiento más y que hasta hoy permanece: al ahora típico jugo congelado del país le llamarían “limber” por su característica fría y dura.
