Day 154 Ines of My Soul

I've just finished my first book of the summer, Ines of my Soul by Isabel Allende.  I really love Allende's work and this book is no exception.  It tells the story of Ines Suarez, a woman who was Pedro Valdivia's mistress and they both founded Santiago, Chile.  Evidently, the story is based on fact and I learned a lot from this book.
I didn't really know a lot about Chile before except for I've seen breathtaking pictures and knew that I want to visit one day.  Now, thanks to this book, it seems really interesting and something that I have to add to the bucket list.  I really suggest you check it out- along with any of Allende's other work too.


I am behind again on this blog.  It's not because of boredom or the fact that I don't have time to take pictures right now.  I have been sick.  This cold or flu is really kicking me in the butt.  I have days where I'm OK, but then yesterday, I went to one store and had to go back home and took a 3 hour nap because it exhausted me so much!  I hope that next week at this time I'm over this or Costa Rica is going to be really hard for me to get through. ugh.

  1. Another book for my reading list, sounds like a good one. Please take care of yourself and hurry to get better. I'll worry and worry while your in CR if you're sick when you go.
