Jorge loves this house dearly. He was not born here, though. It was his grand father's house, and he lived there as a child, surrounded by his ants. He used to climb that same mamoncillo tree to get to the roof and to his cousin's house, a couple of roofs away. He remembers his uncles admonishing him to be careful, "¡the vas a matar, pelao!" Other memories are of the massive rooms constantly filled with music: piano, violin: every family member seemed to know how to play an instrument. Or the never ending 'duels' when a person close to the house passed away: the black dresses and suits, the silence, the somber atmosphere in stark contrast with the vociferous nature of the Caribbean.

You listen to Jorge's childhood stories, and it's impossible not to think García Márquez. The magic realism may be a stereotype but that doesn't mean it's not there. It is, and it's true.

We, too, believe there is something special about the house. Felt it when we first saw it. We dream of beautiful things to come. We feel humbled to have been entrusted with its legacy, and hope to proof worthy of the task.

(huge colonial house, blocks away from the beach in downtown Santa Marta. 4 bedrooms, small pool, magnificent manoncillo tree on the patio. not luxurious at all, but spacious and peaceful. twitter @casadelnispero)
