I am pleased and excited to share the release of a free e-book, Celebrating Latin America at Ground Level [click the link to view/download the PDF].
Celebrating Latin America at Ground Level, compiled by Steven Roll of the blog Travelojos, contains 29 brief personal essays about life and travel in Mexico, Central and South America. Steven notes, "The idea behind the e-book is to offer a platform from which bloggers in this niche can demonstrate what makes them and Latin America so special."
Each story provides a colorful and unique glimpse into some aspect of Latin American culture, with contributors detailing experiences from Mexico to Argentina, and just about everywhere in between. A slew of talented travel writers collaborated on this effort, including my blog buddy Eileen Smith from Bearshapedsphere.
My contribution to Celebrating Latin America at Ground Level, entitled "Drink" (found on p. 23), discusses the importance of mate in Argentine culture. The essays "La Vida" by Cathy Brown and "Buses" by Vicky Baker touch on Argentina as well.
So, get your best armchair-traveler mojo workin', and sneak a peek at life south of the border. Download your free copy of Celebrating Latin America at Ground Level now.
A big thank you goes out to Steven Roll for inviting me to participate in this project!
Update: Thanks to Margaret Snook at Cachando Chile for compiling a list with links to all the bloggers and travel writers who participated in the e-book.
