Looks like you'll be busy. Our library is actually closed for San Fermin, and it's not even in Pamplona itself, but that's how much of a big deal the fiesta is. I'll be happy when they open again...

Nice, huh!

Mother T...Ahhh, but you have a HUGE party going on, and that's not all bad either.

Loved both Shanghai Girls and Growing Pains. Haven't read any of the others because I'm a woosie. Shanghai Girls is tough to get through in spots because of the subject matter - the writing is exquisite. Read on!

Bodhi! What's a woosie???? I am looking forward to reading Shanghai Girls, though I'm saving Growing Pains for Spain as it is mine not a loaner. Glad to know it's good!
