Metastasis is a frightening word. It means death in 90% of Cancer cases, as it means the disease is spreading in the body.  However, scientists understand more and more the process of cell-splitting, from beginning to end, binging hope to a near cure.

Those years of the Latin American Boom in Barcelona

The statue of Columbus pointing to America is probably one of the most emblematic monuments of Barcelona. It is located at the end of the Ramblas, in front of the old port, from where today you can board Las Golondrinas, a popular touristic boat. In that same place, coming from the same direction to which the finger of Columbus is still pointing, the Peruvian writer Mario Vargas Llosa landed for the first time in Barcelona in 1958. On that occasion the author arrived from Lima and was going to Madrid to study at the Complutense.

Aquellos años del Boom en Barcelona

La estatua de Cristóbal Colón con el dedo índice apuntando a América es probablemente uno de los monumentos más emblemáticos de Barcelona. Está situada al final de la Rambla, frente al puerto viejo, desde donde hoy zarpan unas embarcaciones de recreo llamadas Las Golondrinas, muy concurridas entre los turistas. En ese mismo lugar, procedente de la misma dirección a la que sigue apuntando el dedo de Colón, desembarcó por primera vez a Barcelona el escritor peruano Mario Vargas Llosa, en 1958.
