My father was the most famous telegraphist in town. He would be the guy who’d introduce any girl to the guy who asked him for you know, a little push.
We moved then to my last town of residency, I grew up there from 1966 to 2009 when I came to the US.
But, the first house we were living in was all paid for the government and it had a beautiful and charming feature…the clocktower in town. Imagine you leaving your house, and as soon as you step out, you could see this tower, and above your head, these 2 heavy pendulums and the familiar sound of the trac, trac, trac.
Every hour, it would chime big time, and that event was a headache for us the first 6 months or so, then we gradually got used to it.
I promise you I will bring old photos of that tower.
Here, this is the most recent picture. I am looking for an older one. I lived there for about 6 years until dad bought our home. Unfortunately, it is blurry, but you can see a guy in white shirt kind of covering the famous front door where I used to live.
On your left, you see one of those rolling up doors, there we had the municipal police station. In front of it, I saw the municipal garbage truck carrying 3 decapitated bodies, which signaled the escalation of the cold war with its 200,000+ people killed or disappeared, killings supported by the United States.
Watch this video starting at 2:35 to 2:41. You will see my dad walking down the street. Black pants, blue shirt, with a cap on his head. I was laughing when I discovered that. He was 70 years old at that time.
It’s depressing to see how a city hasn’t gentrified,
