No, I’m not here to review the book by Laura Esquivel, the Mexican novelist. It is, however, on my list. It’s one of those books that I never read in middle school/high school, and would like to do so. Maybe I’ll try it in Spanish instead?

Como Agua Para Chocolate is also the name of a restaurant in Santiago. It’s delicious! Dr. Julie Mostov, Vice Provost for Global Initiatives at Drexel University’s Office of International Programs, was visiting Santiago for meetings, and took the time to meet RO, JR, and me for dinner this past Wednesday night. It was wonderful to meet her and for the four of us to spend some time together. It was also the first time I’ve gone out for dinner in Santiago, and it didn’t disappoint. We had steak for dinner, and followed it up with chocolate of course!
