Trip to Barcelona is coming soon. We are reading in a little Catalan vocabulary in our guide book. It does not have words as polar bear or kangaroo and it disappoints Dominik.
I want to take "Spanish reading" with me since I have always had a strange habit of taking something completely out of place with me to read during my holiday, as books in Italian to America or Polish and depressive essays to the Greek coast. I might end up reading Borges. It is close, anyway.
Oh, and travel books by Čapek from 1930s, they are pretty neat, fresh and nice, and interesting after all, Spain was so different ..., one can say.

A little boy gets smaller and explores the world of insect. He gets by well because he knows a lot of stuff, he is curious and has a microscope back in his big world. It is nicely written this book. Beginning of the first day of summer holiday, quiet morning and air shivering with adventure is especially nice. I think my little guy does not care about the book at all. He does not know yet what summer holiday is.
