July 14, 2014, Monday evening -- Reading Mariusz Szczygiel

In Brussels (where I'm on vacation)
She's walking down the street, reading Gottland, by the Polish author and journalist, Mariusz Szczygiel.  She's reading in Polish, her native language.  The book is about communism times in Czechoslovakia.  She likes reading books like this one that are reportage

Her favorite author is Mario Vargas Llosa, who is Peruvian.  When I asked if she had a favorite of his, she said Pantaleón y las visitadoras, in English, Captain Pantoja and the Special Service.
