July 17th is Joaquín Salvador Lavado's (or Quino's) birthday. We celebrated by making Mafalda stickers. But who is Mafalda you ask? Mafalda is the savvy 6 year old star of her own comic strip, first published in 1964. She is ever concerned with humanity and world peace and regularly questions the state of affairs bequeathed by her elders - all in an innocently matter of fact tone. She also hates soup - just so you know.
One of my Mafalda favorite quotes: "Ya que amarnos los unos a los otros no resulta, ¿Por qué no probamos amarnos los otros a los unos?"
