Viudo de capaz

Among the most typical delicacies of the Magdalena River is this steamed fish served with yucca, potatoes, other tubers of the region and my favorite spice, coriander.

I’m visiting for a few weeks in Colombia. Hadn’t been here since 2003. Things change.

My second year

Today, two years ago, in 2003, I arrived to what would become my home for a still undeterminate length of time, perhaps several years, perhaps till the end.

Today, almost two years after my wedding, and almost half a year since the other wedding, the prospect of children is more and more certain. Perhaps one day they will read these postings and wonder even more who their father is, or was, or will be.

The longer I spend here, the longer I realize that, finally, I found home, that a long life of nomadism has finally ended. I have never spent more than seven years in the same place. If five more years go by and I’m still here, the record will have been broken. We shall see.
