Gabriela en Valpo

Gabriela Mistral was born in the Elqui Valley (Coquimbo) exactly 120 years ago . She was the first latin american woman to get the Nobel prize for her poetry.... and many times she was in Valparaiso, when this port was the gateway to get to central Chile... so was her public letter asking that in case of returning to Chile she would like to live in Valpo or its surroundings.... With my Celtamericana's friends we did record the musical soundtrack for a documentary film on her life and later a CD remembering her poetry and her figure as a woman, teacher, etc. and now two years later.... today is her birthday.... something to celebrate..
