Book lovers know that turning over the last page of a good novel means another mystery, history or blistery tome is waiting in the wings. It’s the same with chili.

Want to learn a little Spanish?

Even though this story takes place in Uruguay, there are lots to relate to, especially the teenage daughter when she rolls her eyes.

In other words, you guessed it, “tanta agua.” Ever been on a trip like that? What is a teenager to do but create a few diversions for herself.
