Amanecer en Córdoba

Primer amanecer en Córdoba. Despierto a una hora inusitada para mí: nueve de la mañana, tiempo de acá, la hora en que habitualmente despierto en Colima, es decir, las seis. Luego de cobrar conciencia de mi situación, el hambre me recuerda que la alacena y el refrigerador están vacíos. Salgo a la calle por comida desde el piso 13 del edificio.

El departamento donde habito se ubica en la esquina de bulevar San Juan y Obispo Trejo, en la frontera entre el bullicioso barrio Nueva Córdoba y el centro de la ciudad. Un sitio ideal para mis propósitos: caminando podré llegar a la Universidad y, en sentido contrario, a una zona con calles peatonales, museos, teatros, librerías, bares y monumentos como la Manzana Jesuítica, Patrimonio Cultural de la Humanidad.

Hoy domingo está casi todo cerrado. El clima es fresco, agradable. He tomado algunas fotos de detalles que llaman la atención, como los recordatorios en parques públicos de la dictadura. Más sorpresas de otro tipo aguardan en las calles semivacías, como los kioscos de periódicos, con los vendedores concentrados en la lectura de los diarios, que levantan la cara amables y responden con una negativa a mi pregunta por “Página 12”: aún no llega, ayer llegó a la una.

Me detengo en una confitería cuando recuerdo que salí al desayuno. “El ruedo”, se llama, en la plazoleta del fundador de la ciudad. Allí permanezco con un dossier de “Le Monde Diplomatique”, que nunca había leído impreso. Entre paréntesis: ¡qué maravilla de escritura periodística! Las horas pasan mientras el día se hace viejo. Leo, escucho música ambiental, escribo estas notas o contemplo un paisaje distinto al que miran mis ojos cotidianamente, un paisaje reconfortante, con hombres y mujeres, sobre todo mayores, que parecen vivir sin prisa, cada uno en lo suyo, disfrutando las medias lunas y un café con leche, sus conversaciones, un domingo, la ciudad, estar juntos y vivos.

    The trips to places with different time to ours is very difficult.

    Go Travel to places either fences or far, always find interesting things.

    While we make trips to places of work, are always interesting because you see things and places that are not here.

    The squares, gardens, museums, and other interesting places are everywhere.
