No market stuff for me ...
... stumbled across an English language bookstore which was a rare sight so we decided to pop in. It ended up being a great stop because both Bree and I discovered some new authors that sounded interesting and thanks to some Amazon gift cards that my mom had given us, we could test drive a few new options to find some new favorites. So after scouring the shelves for a bit we continued on and made our way over to the old town area where we were staying. There weren’t ...
