  • Don Gerardo

    I had another name: Tachito, by his gait stooped and silent, and was saying, the boy this and that. I did not know that both children told me, why not call me by my name like everyone else. Also when I called down to the communities where my Mamacona Herlinda had their crops. The attendants told me the child, for there child here. Always in the morning Eulalia brought me milk for the alpacas take warm.

    He also told my Mamacona, I brought my girl Herlinda their milk for the child. And then took us to the kitchen where we invited the cushalito, a potato soup with mint.

His wife and my great grandmother engreia me if I wanted guinea pigs, quick went to the kitchen to cook the aya me, all a whole for me. Many times I sent to my shoes to the shoemaker Don Gerardo, had the same name as my grandfather and that was to grace my Tata. I only hurt the day he left this world. Your body always claimed the smell of flowers and had a big smile. I did not get the wand of our nations, because in those moments I thought it should remain in their hands because our nations were still slaves in the Western world. Goodbye Solo Tata said Noah.
