Andrés Neuman

“We lose the fear of letting go of our baggage, but also the certainty that what is in them belongs to us.”
Andrés Neuman, Traveler of the Century

“It's the same with books, you see mounds of them in bookshops and you want to read them all, or at least to have a taste of them.

Andrés Neuman, Traveler of the Century
