Rescuers of Mankind

Summer holiday 2014 is getting closer. Less than 2 months to go. This year I'll have a five week holiday :) We will go to Le Marche in Italy near Ancona in a big house with our own swimming pool. I have selected the books I want read in my holiday:

In the weeks left I want to finish Moser, 'Why This World. A Biography of Clarice Lispector' (2009) and Cayetana Stuart y Silva, 'Yo, Cayetana' (2011).

Next week, before 1st of June, I want to visit the exhibition 'The Crimea - Gold and secrets of the Black Sea' at the Allard Pierson Museum (Amsterdam). I want to see with my own eyes this 'Brooch with Dolphin.' Made of rock crystal and gold between 1st century BC and 1st century AD on Crimean peninsula. Did you know that for the ancient Greeks dolphins were considered as helpers or rescuers of mankind (source)?
