Smoke Private & Cuss Private

writing, literature

I read “Tom Sawyer” for the first time in, of all places, Medellin, Colombia. The domestic departures terminal at the Bogotá airport actually has a great little bookstore with a neat selection of English books.  I found an illustrated copy of Mark Twain’s classic and could not resist. Glad I didn’t because this read was nearly as fun as my new golden go-to “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”

Plus, moms and dads, the book actually doubles as a terrific parenting guide.
