About the name : Don Manolo.

First and foremost.

Mafalda was written by Quino, as you can know, the comic is quite old, but nevertheless very up to date.


Mafalda presented a reality mixed with childhood fantasies of a long gone time for Argentina and South America in general.

Manolito was my favorite character. Dumb as he can be, he's a disaster in everything at school except for math, due to his work at his dad's grocery store. Well known as:

 - Almacén Don Manolo. -



In Mexico many, many grocery store was tendered by spanish shopkeepers , mexicans named as "gachupines" a wrong term but effective.

To honor Mafalda and those owners, I named Don Manolo to my point of sale.
