Just one weekend...

...took me to read "Hasta Siempre, Mujercitas" (So Long, Little Women) by Marcela Serrano. A very well written history around for cousins from Chile, that in some way could be compared to those Little Women of Lousie May Alcott. Interesting book, easy to read and to get trapped in it (especially if you are from the South Cone, as I am) and that at least in my mind it highlights the decadence of some rural high class, not so high, not so classy but that all they know in reality is related to "El Pueblo" some obscure little town, where they are the all powerful. I enjoyed the book, and I could recognize there some of the people I know in my own country. Poor rich people that I don't pity at all.
