Telenovela Alborada, #22 (Guest bloggers)
Friends, I am having withdrawal pangs from missing so much of Alborada - I'm very grateful to my guest bloggers for keeping up with the show. I'll be back at it next Monday. Meanwhile, here are recaps by Sylvia S. and Ruth for Monday and Tuesday. Thanks!!!
This is a recap of the Univision telenovela Alborada. In order to read the whole post, you click "read the rest" at the bottom of this summary!

Harpias, known in English as harpies: "Malicious fierce-tempered woman" From Greek mythology: "A fabulous, vicious winged monster, ravenous and filthy, having the face of a woman and the body of a vulture, with long claws, and the face pale with hunger." This is an EXCELLENT word for the telenovelas - there are harpies in each and every one!
Monday, as reported by Sylvia S.: Ada is playing with Rafael, letting him jump on the bed, when Hipólita enters, exhausted after her first day at work. (Remember she got in a fight with Perla and then got fired for having a son.) Rafael is unusually animated today.
Ada is shocked at Hipólita's scratched face and asks if her boss hit her. "Oh no, I just fell over some baskets at the market."
