01_cafecito chat_Unpacking the Suitcase

April 27, 2019

To feel at home, you have to unpack the suitcase.

The process of feeling at home, of loving this country, this town and this life as much as I love them today did not happen overnight. When I put the suitcase in the closet, I realized that unpacking it did not mean that I was becoming someone else. My Colombian essence was not disappearing just because I was putting some distance from the material things that represent my culture.
