The House on Mango Street Chapter 31 - Rafaela Who Drinks Coconut...

Rafaela lives on Mango Street and is stuck in a strict marriage. She is constantly leaning out of the window, waiting for her husband to return. However, he will not allow her to leave the apartment because he fears her beauty will cause problems. She often throws money down to Esperanza, Nenny, and their friends on Tuesdays, so that they would run to the store and buy her Coconut or Papaya Juice to drink. They send it up to her on string, while she wishes she were drinking a sweeter drink in a sweeter place.
