It is great to meet with Ruben again after he has been in Equador and Colombia for the last 2 years. Of course he has been in the Bolivar-an region since seven years, but the influence of local culture has been much stronger in the last years. I simply might notice it more than before, having a sharper eye for his behavior this time. I am very curious after the characteristic and psychologic changes of my friends. He is playing Cumbia and Porra, old style Latin music, Son, old style salsa, and Colombian punk on his notebook, during the evening well into the night.
