Hanging out with Marley, Morrison and Monroe at one of the highest border crossings on the planet.
Actually, if you look closely, the selection provides neither. Just a wide variety of legendary South American crooners that nicely fits this establishment’s motif. This is one of the numerous old jukeboxes at the Salon Malaga on Calle...
