I was born in Santiago in the Republic of Chile in 1970. During Pinochet´s coup in 1973 my father had to seek for asylum in the French embassy we therefore ended up in Paris in mid 74. While my dad was in the french embassy my mom passed and once we were in Paris he decided to send me to his brother who was in a better condition in Hungary.
I lived in Hungary for 2 years and then my father sent for me to Paris were we lived for a while at Cartier Latin and then followed to Mozambique. Those were the best days of my life! Then Pinochet allowed political refugee to go back home, by that time I was finishing my secondary school, since University was not an option in Maputo my father decided to sent me back to Chile to do my study. For someone who has lived this type of life it is difficult to decide were I am from,
I guess I could say that circumstances made me a son of the wind rose. Now I have lived in Algarve for a longer period than any other country I have lived in and since we are so many foreign resident I guess I could claim to be Algarvian!!!
