A last goodbye

When Isaac Kappy died, I wrote for him the closest things to an eulogy I could come up with. Might not have been the best written eulogy, might not even haven been a eulogy at all. But it was heart-felt. I pour my soul into into every word I typed and I cried for hours while doing so.

El coche y la silla

A Ramón le gustaba mucho el dinero y estar a la moda. Tenía todos los modelos de iPhone, así como tabletas electrónicas, relojes digitales, ropas de marca, y en fin, todo lo que se le antojara. Tan solo tenía que ir a la tienda, elegir algo, y pasar por la ranura la tarjeta de crédito que le había dado su padre. Como era de esperar, Ramón provenía de una familia adinerada en la que nunca tuvieron problema para satisfacer todos sus caprichos. A los dieciocho años, sus padres lo mandaron a estudiar economía y finanzas a una prestigiosa universidad de Nueva York. A los treinta, Ramón era un exitoso corredor de bolsa.

The Land of the Free-ish

My American friends always like to boast that America is ‘the land of the free’ and ‘the land of opportunity’. I get that. We all love our own homelands. But when it comes to America, how free are you exactly?

Cuestión de sangre

Muchos años atrás, yo trabajaba en el hospital de la Fe de Valencia como doctor adjunto, terminando mi tesis y mis dos último años de prácticas. Después, sería un doctor licenciado y podría trabajar en cualquier lugar del mundo. Aunque la verdad, lo que yo quería era irme de voluntario con Médicos sin Fronteras, pues para mí era más gratificante poder ayudar a aquellos que no tenían acceso a la sanidad, pública o privada.
