... I went to pay homage and my most sincere respects to the one once called “the greatest Colombian who ever lived” at the Claustro de la Merced at Cartagena de Indias University...
And of course...It was full of yellow butterflies!. Maestro we'll meet again in Macondo.
By the way it’s been 3 days I am like José Arcadio Buendía trying to find a drink of a 'gentle color' that helps me to find the light that was made in his memory ... with no success.
Gabo ... Eternal.
Gabriel José de la Concordia García Márquez (1927/2014) was a Colombian novelist, short-story writer, screenwriter and journalist, known affectionately as Gabo or Gabito throughout Latin America.
García Márquez was born in the small town of Aracataca, situated in a tropical region of northern Colombia, between the mountains and the Caribbean Sea.
Considered one of the most significant authors of the 20th century and one of the best in the Spanish language, he was awarded the 1972 Neustadt International Prize for Literature and the 1982 Nobel Prize in Literature.
