Orellana Bookstore demise
Another blow for our city, Librería Orellana, along with Libreria Ivens, is perhaps the oldest bookstore in town..... Last week it just closed down. Surviving bookstores left.... you can count them with one hand...... and this is a city with over a quarter million inhabitants..... Oh tempora Oh mores.
