Originally uploaded by dream awakener.

this by far is one of my favorite pictures that i have taken thus far. of course it is in a bookstore, which is like heaven for me. the bookstore is old, with beds to sit on and interesting decor.

this bookstore is a revamping of one that was here in 1920. american writers flocked here for the cheap rents above the bookstore, fleeing the prohibition era in the u.s. earnest hemingway borrowed books from here regularly. other famous writers hung out here as well.
