More Summer Reads

Amazon Prime delivered to our front door step the three books I ordered before on Tuesday afternoon in Florida.

Perfect backgrounder for our planned scouting trip to Caldas in late September*
I bought this for Ch. 3: a discussion of the curious case of Wildred Blunt, the “accidental anti-colonial colnialist,” and his dealings with Egypt’s 19th C. Nationalist, Ahmad Urabi

The Great Sea is a brick. 600+ pages!

I can’t wait to dive into its evocative waters.

*After skimming the “Scouting” chapter my verdict is that its a bit fluffy and thin, especially if you have already been to Portugal and/or have traveled to Europe. Worth reading to get your toes wet as to the scope what would be involved, should you dream about escaping America.
