Pablo Escobar: My Father

Done! I finished this book yesterday.

Although I found the first half interesting (and debatable,) I got bored of Juan Pablo’s narrative.

Written by the son of Pablo Escobar (the most powerful drug lord and narcoterrorist that ever existed,) he clearly outlines the price the family had to pay for a life they did not choose.

At first, it was difficult to understand why his father was such a wanted man, then as he grew, Juan Pablo Escobar became very aware of his father’s criminal history of violence.

Overall this is a good book, however, I’m not sure how credible some of Juan Pablo’s recollections are, considering that he was only 16 when his father was killed… How much a teenager can understand of an international criminal enterprise?

From times the author tries to look badass, but most of the time he is apologetic… And I may sound like a jerk but I found him ANNOYING!

I have no doubts Juan Pablo is a decent man, he is also a victim… And all the shit he went through in exile in Argentina (with all the names he mentions that I’m familiar with) was malicious as hell.

Yet, I don’t buy his humble character. I don’t feel it (at least not in this book).

I feel more like he’s seeking empathy, and perhaps also trying to humanise a bit his dad’s image. I don’t condemn him and I don’t admire him.

What Juan Pablo makes me feel is complete indifference.

I believe we all transit our issues the best we can, and this was his way.

New Book

Last Saturday I had sex with a straight guy, but I’ve haven’t fuck since Sunday…  Randy effectiveness to keep me calm is undeniable, and by far he’s the only guy that gives me enough to rest few days.

Also, I’m entering a new stage that I’ll be able to mention on Friday.

Since sex is not happening by choice, for few more days, I’m focusing on painting and also on this new book I just bought… Pablo Escobar: My Father.

I guess you all get what this memoir is about.

Growing in South America, Pablo Escobar was a very popular name, although, I never paid attention on him in detail. He was “famous” but not from my country.

All I knew is that he was the most powerful drug lord and criminal back then, and whenever you heard “Colombia” you immediately associated with aguardiente and drugs.

Pablo Escobar is NOT the one on Netflix.

This memoir is not the story of a child seeking redemption for his father, but a shocking look at the consequences of violence and the overwhelming need for peace and forgiveness. More to come…

TOP 10 TUNE OF THE YEAR

The year is almost over, and as every year here are the songs I played the most.

As usual, it was very hard to make a “top 10” but in this opportunity, particularly, I’m surprised by the amount of Latin songs that marked me on 2017…

I guess the fact that I’ve been single this year, and that Spanish is my first language, made me more vulnerable to the lyrics of those songs.

The songs below are now forever part of my past.

10- Traicionera by Sebastián Yatra  

09- J’ai Cherché by Amir 

08- That’s What I Like by Bruno Mars

07- Me Llamas by Piso 21 ft. Maluma

06-Boys by Charli XCX 

05-Friends by Justin Bieber & BloodPop

04- What Lovers Do by Maroon 5 ft. SZA

03- Kamikaze by Patrice Michaud 

02- Me Rehúso by Danny Ocean

01- Sé Que Te Duele by Alejandro Fernández ft. Morat

And my TOP SONG of 2017 is:

Felices Los 4 by (my other husband) Maluma

Enjoy!!
