My teaser:Cholera

From the sky they could see, just as God saw them, the ruins of the very old and heroic city of Cartagena de Indias, the most beautiful in the world, abandoned by its inhabitants because of the cholera panic after three centuries of resistance to the sieges of the English and the atrocities of the buccaneers. They saw the walls still intact, the brambles in the streets, the fortifications devoured by heartsease, the marble palaces and the golden altars and the Viceroys rotting with plague inside the armor.

Love In The Time Of Cholera by Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez (62% Kindle edition – Loc 3763 of 6083)

    • It is an enjoyable book. There are times that I have been stunned by things that have happened, which makes you see that there is little that you can predict
