Looking back

Today, this Wednesday morning, I am sitting on an old sofa writing about what I still can not decipher. The days can be very intense when you go back to what used to be my whole idea of a home. The truth is that three years living outside the country have not helped me feel…

To look back

Mirar atrás Hoy, en esta madrugada de un miércoles, me encuentro sentada en un viejo sofá escribiendo sobre lo que aún no logro descifrar. Los días pueden ser muy intensos cuando vuelves a lo que antes conformaba toda mi idea de un hogar. Lo cierto es que tres años viviendo fuera del país no me…

How to eat a pomegranate 1

Monday 10th, September and time flies- I feel like I had left home yesterday, however, the calendar says something different. (Should I believe on the calendar?)

HOLA AMIGOSSS Today is a Wednesday night in Chile. I came back from Singapore something like 2 months ago, and after some traveling around, I could open the window and observe the old port of Valparaíso. It's a city full of colors, life, tragedy, and comedy. Life is intense here. Valparaiso is a city composed…
