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.
