From the first day I said: I arrived in Chile. This is my place. But I have a very clear memory of the country I came to. Two things really caught my attention. On the one hand, I arrived from having lived in the Canary Islands in the Spain of "the destape", from a society that liberalized culturally very quickly after Franco's death. And to arrive in Chile was to come to a, I am not saying a convent of nuns but, to arrive at a country culturally, not only with the weight of the dictatorship and the censorship and the cultural repression of the dictatorship, but to a country very morally closed, very prudish [...]. And the other thing that caught my attention was the material poverty that existed in Chile at that time.
