After months of dealing with many situations I finally decided to let everything go. Lucky for me, I know the Staff of “En Culebra Magazine”, who invited me to the distribution of their Magazine’s second issue and a backstage view of all the work they do to give all their readers a glimpse of Culebra’s beauty.
The invitation was supposed to get my mind off things but it served for a lot more. Our first night, we went out to distribute a few magazines. “The Spot” a cozy bar at the entrance of town became our refuge for the night. Fede, the owner poured a round and joined us for some laughs and conversations. Shortly there after a short, barefooted, surfer looking, character walked through the door. “Chiquitin” (little one) as he was introduced to me, became the life of the party sharing personal anecdotes, life lessons, jokes and social views with anybody who would listen. Fede’s wife, Alicia, Javi from “Juanita Bananas”, Juan a local celebrity and a few others joined our evening. I felt like the new comer in “Cheers”; were everybody knew everybody’s name and tried very hard to learn mine. Our fi rst night ended stargazing at Zoní, a beach that offered an immediate connection to nature.
Saturday morning we distributed more magazines and allowed ourselves to enjoy a beach called “Punta Soldado”. A great beach for snorkeling also offered a great opportunity for sunbathing. Our relaxed afternoon was followed by an amazingly delicious dinner in Susie’s, a meal that cannot be described in words except to say that it left us in what was explained to me as a “food coma”.
