i’m a fan of bookstores. i’ve been trying to visit the bookstores on this list since it came out (livraria da vila in sao paulo was a bust) whenever the opportunity presents itself. but i’m not limited by this list; i’m always on the lookout for the type of bookstore that will keep me there the whole day (like days of yore)
aksara’s such a place, with just enough hipster stuff to keep me from throwing up. i only hope that there’s are legit chairs to sit back and read the books (i’ll buy it, don’t worry 😆. im not cheap when it comes to books).
once you’re done browsing through books and trinkets, you can unwind upstairs at casa (more on that later)
