Moby Dick coffee

Trip Report: Moby Dick II (Lajes do Pico, Açores, Portugal)

"This coffee bar is really a service kiosk made out of a mini Airstream-like trailer decorated to look curiously like a sperm whale "

"The worldwide commercial nature of the whaling industry also marked the birth of modern globalization. It is within this context that you have to appreciate one of the greatest works of American literature, Herman Melville’s Moby Dick. (Our visit to Pico made us reread the novel for the first time since high school, which we enjoyed a lot more this time around.)"
