Today we caught a 10 am bus from Piura to Chiclayo. Our drive was through barren desert. According to Wikipedia the Sechura desert is “one of the most arid on Earth”.
On the ride I finished listening to season one and the updates of the podcast Serial. I think I am really late to talking about this podcast. Everyone else has already listened to it. I found it fascinating. I still can’t decide if I think he did it or not. If you haven’t listened to it I recommend it.
This afternoon I also finished my third book of the trip. Book two was a nonfiction book – There’s a Fish in my Ear – about translation. It was interesting but a bit long winded. The book I finished today was Where’d You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would say it is of the same caliber of another light entertaining book I really enjoyed, The Rosie Project.
