La Reina del Sur
She did, they just didn't tell us until near the end.
Making time for reading this morning. I've made it to chapter three and a couple of quotes tickled my fancy...
" .. el acento la hacía parecer educada, con ese vocabulario abundante que tienen los hispanoamericanos, tan lleno de ustedes y de por favores que los hace parecer a todos académicos de la lengua."
And speaking about Santiago Fisterra....
"Algo atravesado, como todos los gallegos."
(Mi abuelo was gallego y todavía tengo familia en Galicia) 🤣
I've made it to chapter 5. It's slow going though. It's not that it feels particularly difficult, but I am annoyed by the instusions of the narrator. Osea, I wasn to read about Teresa. NOT the investigations into Teresa. Right now they don't feel very much part of her story. I guess it's intended to be an explanation of the drug trade in Spain, but eh...I don't really care that much.
