Despite my ample hospitality, I prefer—I must confess—those who make me into a work of art. The second I see their mischievous eyes, I welcome them with open arms. Flattered, I don’t discriminate: if they play for me I dance, if they want to paint me I let them, if they want to put a statue on me, I bare my earthen skin. In return they leave me avocados, homages to the sun, a multicolored bridge, crab-benches… Oh, everywhere, from Ventana al Mar to Barrio Obrero, from Minillas to Villa Grafiti, they treat me like a queen. Explore me and you’ll see: I’m the darling of the arts.
