May 19, 2012 -- Reading Jorge Bucay -- Barcelona, Spain

 On a beach in Barcelona, reading El camino de las lágrimas by the Argentine writer, Jorge Bucay.  The title translates as The Trail of Tears, and tells stories about the process of losing someone you love.
Her favorite book is Bajo el sol de Kenia (or Green City in the Sun) by the British/American writer Barbara Wood, about a British woman pioneer doctor who goes to Africa in 1917 and the drama that ensues between modern/traditional medicine and other colonial/traditional differences.
She and her friend are visiting from Chile.
