Title: Manana Manana - A Mallorcan Summer
Author: Peter Kerr Publisher: Summersdale Rating 7/10
Manana Manana (Manana meaning tomorrow in Spanish) is a perfect book to read to
find out what life is Spain is like. Although set in a quiet town in Mallorca
with a farm and a Scottish family as its protagonist, it is easy for anyone who has visited
Spain to get into the story, especially when Kerr explains the relaxed, chilled
'tranqilo' culture of Spaniards. With flashes of humour and an array of misadventures that include brushes with the local police, the unfortunate outcome of a drinking session and the sense of community shared by their neighbours, there is plenty to laugh about. For most parts, it was an interesting book and reminded me of my own recent trip to Spain. I really enjoyed reading the
author's reflections of Spanish life and culture.
I write, I travel and I love. I also enjoy early morning jogs, experimenting with home made salads and pillow fights with my niece. On a quest to discover my spiritual side, I reflect, retrace, and ramble. Oh, and I love tofu.
