Un Pedazo de Historia | A Piece of History


馃摳: Andr茅s Blanco.

Me encuentro en la legendaria Hacienda Calib铆o en Cauca (Colombia), fundada en 1793, donde fue librada la batalla de independencia de 1814 y fue hospedaje de Simon Bolivar en 1826. Ha sido propiedad privada desde sus inicios pasando de generaci贸n en generaci贸n, y actualmente es propiedad de la familia Simmonds Trujillo, qui茅nes a煤n frecuentan su majestuosa hacienda, a pesar de estar abierta al p煤blico.

Atravesando un peque帽o sendero de altos 谩rboles, se encuentra esta casa con plantas florecidas y altas puertas que cuentan historias de esclavitud, libertad, familias y hasta moda! Aqu铆 realmente quisi茅ramos que se cumpliera el dicho "si las paredes hablaran...", porque seguramente tendr铆an historias fascinantes por contar. En mi caso, prefiero que las fotograf铆as hablen por s铆 mismas y podr谩n ver esta hacienda a trav茅s de nuestros ojos (de mi amado fot贸grafo y yo) en la galer铆a m谩s abajo.

Como no ten铆a idea con qu茅 me iba a encontrar, decid铆 por un outfit muy c贸modo pero con acentos de diferentes etnias y culturas, tales como mis zapatos espadrilles, que nacieron en Espa帽a, mi bolso con un aire tribal, africano y un pa帽uelo pintado a mano en Colombia (la verdad este outfit lo escogi贸 mi subconsciente, ya que veo como todas las piezas se relacionan en este instante al escribir el post y lo eleg铆 basado en su comodidad principalmente).

Es muy especial recorrer estos sitios tan representativos, porque cada rinc贸n nos transporta a otras 茅pocas y hasta por un momento nos sentimos en la piel de esas personas que estuvieron all铆 mientras se constru铆a la historia. Por esto conocer otros lugares es tan maravilloso, porque no s贸lo nos hace viajar a espacios f铆sicos, sino tambi茅n, a viajar en el tiempo.

I am at the legendary Hacienda Calibio in Cauca (Colombia), born in 1793, where was held the battle of independence in 1814, and even Simon Bolivar stayed in 1826. It has been privately owned since it was built, passing from one generation to the next, and currently it is property of the Simmonds-Trujillo family, who still visits the hacienda, despite the fact that is open to the public.

Going through a little path of beautiful high trees, you find this impressive house with flowering plants, and high doors that tell stories about slavery, freedom, families, and even fashion! Here, we would really hope the saying "if these walls could talk..." was true, because they would absolutely have fascinating stories to tell. In my case, I prefer the photos to do all the talking, and you can see the hacienda through our eyes (mi beloved photographer's and mine) in the gallery below.

Since I had no idea what I was going to find, I chose an outfit that was comfortable, with some accents from other ethnicities and cultures, such as my espadrilles, which are originally from Spain, my bag with a tribal, African vibe, and my hand painted handkerchief made in Colombia (the truth is, this outfit was chosen by my subconscious, because I realize now how it's all related while writing this post, since I picked it out based mostly on comfort).

It is very special to go through incredible representative places such as this one, because every corner takes us to different times, and even just for a moment, we feel like those people who were there while history was being made. That is why knowing different places is so wonderful, because not only makes us travel to physical places, but also, makes us travel in time.
