....As we, Colombians, used to call him!
Today The world of literature has lost a Giant!!!
Farewell to Gabriel García Márquez, ("Adios a Gabo")!!
All the World, Latin Americans and specially, myself as a Colombian I feel a deep sadness to know that today we have lost one of the greatest writers of the Spanish Language ...Nobel prize in 1982 for his novel "One Hundred Years of Solitude/Cien Años de Soledad"
I feel touched not only because I am Colombian and "we" admire him deeply but because I had the opportunity to meet him when I was 15 years old while living in Mexico, City...
Photo: Him and I, with his novel: "Cien años de Soledad!"
and the flags of our 2 beloved countries : México and Colombia
on his lapel
No words to express the sadness to loose one of the most respected and honored Latin American writer!!!
Paying him a small tribute through this post
and this special card that I made as soon as I knew...
Wishing him to fly like a butterfly free of "sickness" with his adored Colombian flag colors...
"Cry, Laugh but ...foremost
Rest in Peace!
Descansa en Paz, Querido 'Gabo'!
