Carlos Turrubiarte: Preparing for a Revolution | Portfolio

This is the story of a defeat. Despite his ethical responsibility and commitment to build a fair and solidary world Che Guevara did not assume that revolutions have no reason to be, a revolution will always rise a worse breed than the caste that was defeated, what is needed at any case is an evolution.

It will be in Mexico where a free, intelligent and passionate Che Guevara will live in misery, will sell toys in the street, will be a traveling photographer, watchman in a library, will meet with the exiled poet León Felipe, collect cats in the streets for his medical investigations . In Mexico he will marry Hilda Gadea before he begin training with the cubans, long hours paddling in the lake of Chapultepec, expeditions to the mountains of the city, karate sessions, military training on a leased ranch, turkey target practice, physical conditioning and wrestling lessons with wrestler Arsacio "Kid" Vanegas.

Che in Mexico will discover tacos and will drink Coca-Cola. He will plan impossible trips, learn how to cut hair, will end up in prison custody with the future fighters and begin his unfinished book on the function of the doctor in Latin America, but most important of all, the days in Mexico will define Che's implacable and solid moral proposition that will acompany him until his dead.

I not only admire Che, I'm also grateful to him.
