T- told me about how the Plaza de Santo Domingo is the place to go to solicit the work of los escribanos, men who write letters for people for a variety of purposes. Some of these men took care of legal documents, and others, such as Señor Miguel, write love letters. For fifty pesos and a few details about her relationship with her boyfriend, T– purchased a custom-written love note that she swears is far more eloquent than she might be in professing her heart.
