All kids are born with different inquietuds, yearnings,
and food is definitely one of mine. So is travel. I had a
fire inside me to see different places, meet new people, and learn
new languages. Also, I longed to escape the oppression of Spain’s
military dictator, Francisco Franco.
When I was born, Franco was in power. I was from Catalonia, so
there wasn’t much to like about him, and as a kid I didn’t know
much about Spanish history at the time either. But I knew enough
that there was a dictator ruling the country and that a better way
of life had to be possible.
