Listen to the adventures of Picadou the Pug
“The Essential Francisco Sosa or, Picadou’s Mexico City” is an audio CD that makes for a perfect summer listen. Narrated by author C.M. Mayo, “The Essential Francisco Sosa, or Picadou’s Mexico City” is a vivid account of one of the author’s walks through Coyoacán in Mexico City with her pug Picadou.
Pug lovers can definitely relate to Mayo’s account, because several times on their walk passersby remark on just how cute Picadou is or they stop to pet the outgoing pug. Any pug owner will surely tell you that taking your pug out for a walk and not having someone stop you or point and smile as they drive by is quite rare.
After listening to Mayo’s essay you will surely feel like you traveled to Mexico City. Bits and pieces of the city’s heritage and culture are weaved throughout the narrative. So if you can’t get away this summer be sure to let “The Essential Francisco Sosa or, Picadou’s Mexico City” take you off to Mexico City to meet the adorable Picadou the pug.
