HABITANTES
We live here, in this place that haunts us, and this is where we are and share what we inhabit. We correspond with our life, and in this space, which sometimes escapes us, also at times constitutes our home. Accustomed in our daily walk, we travel through concrete paths, LED lights and soft breezes at dusk. The house is enlarged, and the city is interspersed with our puddles of blood, tears and joys. Now, we the inhabitants live with a simple truth, and that is that our life lives in this city.

Vivimos aquí, en este lugar que nos frecuenta, y que es donde nosotros estamos y compartimos lo que nos habita. Le correspondemos con nuestra vida, y en este espacio, que a ratos se nos escapa, también a ratos constituye nuestra casa. Habituados en nuestro diario andar, transitamos surcando caminos de cemento, de luces LED y de suaves brisas al atardecer. La casa se agranda, y la ciudad se entremezcla con nuestro derroche de sangre, lágrimas y alegrías. Ahora, nosotros los habitantes vivimos con un simple verdad, y es que nuestra vida habita en esta ciudad.
