>Talk about a bookstore!

>Today was a book day. It didn’t have a choice. My brain was in need of good words.  You know the feeling.

I found that and MORE at La Pared, an amazing bookstore (for backpackers…guide books, English words and a friendly helpful face) where I lost myself.
Walked out happily with a new ‘to read’ list and 2 new books. I’ve started one. You may know it. Gabriel Garcia’ Marquez’s ‘Hundred years of Solitude.’
The list:
-Umberto Eco ‘The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana,’ &  ‘Baudolino’
-Ivan Klima ‘ The Ultimate Intimacy’
Diego Rivera (to learn everything I can about this man) They had a great book on his art. (pictured)
-Barbara Kingsolver ‘La Lacuna’
If you get to San Cristobal de las Casas in Mexico and are in need, craving for a decent book and not something that you found on a lost shelf, in a hostel, that may have been written by someone lacking needed skills, then treat yourself.  La Pared is two/three blocks south of the main park on the pedestrian street of Hidalgo.  
And while you’re there, ask what’s happening in the city, they’ve got a grip on what’s happening that needs to be seen.

  1. >Hi, Hailee, hopefully you will get a chance to see the amazing Rivera murals at the U. of Mexico. They are stunning. Thanks for posting the "global community" selection—wonderful advice for all of us and advice that you have been living to the max on your journey of discovery.

    >Thanks so much for the post on our store, Hailee. Our conversation on blogs was an inspiration and I have made several changes to our new blog at La Pared because of it!
