La diáspora es feroz. November 2017. Las montañas de mi ciudad natal me arrullan en mi mente... la nostalgia del pasado se fusiona con el desafío del futuro.

My hometown's mountains lull my mind... the nostalgia from the past fuses with the challenges of the future. I remind myself that only the exciting stories are remembered... and thus I travel, packed with my most intimate things.
