I remember her perfectly, the girl with intense eyes. So intense that I could see them across her sunglasses as if the dark color of them were made of a deep glare.

Since I had sixteen years old I could read the eyes of anyone. Even there are people in Per├║┬áthat works just reading the eyes. I don’t know if I could do the same but certainly I learnt to know the mind behind the people’s eyes. But in her case I was enchanted, lost in the deep sea of their eyes as a little being diving into the vastness. I wonder if someone else saw her the same way as me, eyes so intense that you could see them across her sunglasses.




I had old comics and science fiction tales that spoke of a certain future where we would be travelling to the space with the same difficulty than one take a plane to go to another city.

I read them in the eighties and those years the terrorism had almost destroyed the country, in some way the state was concentrate just to parts of the capital city, so we, frontier’s people, lived in an anarchy, with no much tv, and when we had tv we hadn’t electric energy lol. Thus, although those stories were wrote in sixties to my childhood they feel enough futuristic.

So I tend to think these years, with a mini-computer in my pocket with touch screen and portable tv; a laptop where I can write (I don’t use a noisy typewriter anymore) and design buildings with complex systems; and cameras that can follow my fantasies where a film camera would be something so expensive to shot just 36 exposures; and well, so many things, we are not yet in Mars nor travelling to Alpha Centauri in an intergalactic bus to see the cousins on weekend, but anyway I am still thinking these times not as the present but the future.

Fortunately the predictions about fashion were wrong!!, I prefer a plain t-shirt, a pair of mocs and a simple and classic jeans to a plastic costume with colorful boots (but I could use a cape:D)

PostData: I took the photograph between the cities of Moquegua and Ilo, the phenomenon of mist coming from the sea is called camanchaca.
