“ Hier zit ik dan

mijn stoel

niemand weet

hoe ik mij voel


Heel soms een bezoekje

een enkele keer een praatje

meestal duf alleen,

bovenal zonder maatje.

Het is moeilijk

het is naar

daarom weegt mijn simpele dag

wel honderd kilo zwaar

dankzij dit vervloekte Covid jaar…

Kurà Hulanda

2) Please stay tuned.

Many more interesting pictures from many different places to come.

Often accompanied by my poems.

22. Westpunt

“ Westpint “

No, ningun persona a sperami aki
T’ami mes a bin di bishita relámpago

Simplemente mi gusta paseo i deskubrí
Komo eksplorador

Manera Unamuno ta bisa,
“ Se hace camino al andar
Caminante, son tus huellas
el camino y nada más;
Caminante, no hay camino,
se hace camino al andar.
Al andar se hace el camino,
y al volver la vista atrás
se ve la senda que nunca
se ha de volver a pisar.
Caminante, no hay camino
sino estelas en la mar.”

sigur, sigur
Senda que vuelvo a pisar,
Estelas en el mar curazoleño

mi konosé e pueblo chiquitu aki
Pueblo serka di mar
Unda tambè mi amigu pastor Socrates tabata viva hopi tempu.

Unda nos mes tabata pasa dushi wikent na vakantienan
Den e kampeertent grandi ku a trese di Hulanda

Hopi tempu pasà
Disfrutando de su playa
tambè ku sabroso barbecue, schaafijs di Kortijn ku stroop
i awa di lamunchi
Dushi yu.

Despues di biba tantu tempu rond di mundu
Mi a bin bishitabò di nobo.

Oude liefde roest niet, manera nan ta bisa na Fríolandia,
Despues di esplorá tantu paisnan
Semper bai mi a pensa riba bo.


Bo a kambia hopi

Ami tambè ?

Pero eigenlijk bo a keda mes un kos

Nos a keda mes un kos.

P’ami mes.

Rif – Curaçao

Golven en branding van Rif

Golven en branding van Rif

… Branding

en golven die willen landen

maar de kust

is verdwenen

een piepklein eiland

tot de punt van zijn neus verdronken

in de smaragd groene Caraïbische zee

met koraal rotsen, diabaas


altijd weerbarstige en puntige stenen

geen pad

dat me

zonder gaten


naar een veilige haven

branding en golven

alleen in de zon

wie werpt me een touw…


23. Lousy Scammers

Scammer from Togo
Scammer from Togo

23. Lousy scamMERS V.6.05.20

Scammers, phishers, smishers, blackmailers ?

Almost everybody nowadays receives lousy scam letters.

Very annoying, digital thieves, e-robbers, pick-pockets in e-times.

Who are these people ? Habitat and Ecosystem ?

Scammers, phishers, smishers, scamming, phishing, smishing, robo-callers ??
Son “ Ratas de dos patas” or ” Rats on 2 legs “:

Thieves have always existed and will unfortunately always exist in this unique planet and precious Milkey Way galaxy. Like toxic and malicious viruses and bacteria.

Like Corona Covid-19.
These are real cowards. They never show their true face. They are roaming and flying in the virtual internet space. If one would get robbed in the street at least one could fight them, hit back and knock them knock-out. But these are authentic invisible cowards. Like mosquitos in the dark. Like Covid-19.

Scammer Togo
Scammer Togo

Modus operandi ?

They usually take some temporary, complicated and unusual email address that they abandon as soon if things get too hot. Usually they invent some dreary fairy tale about millions that they have in mind, saved especially for you, oh lucky you.

Very annoying, horrible false stories and always the same style. So crippled that they themselves do not believe it.

Where are they located?

Difficult to know who they are or to track?

In a documentary on tv, by Kees van der Spek, filmed with a small and hidden film camera, they visited and tracked a few Northwest African countries. Where one could see many, many of these scammers working. Incredible, a whole swarm of scammers. Like a swarm of dengue mosquitos in the bush. Most in small shops, more so shacks with internet. Where they spent the whole lousy day. Inventing how to scam and rob globally via internet. With all kind of magical stories. Mainly $$ millions that they have saved especially for you, only you.

Often scammers faking being consultants of National Investment Corporation (NIC) here in Abu Dhabi UAE. See below an example under 22)

What about all the world centre of bitcoin internet criminals/scammers/phishers in Benin City, Nigeria, the Yahoo Boys.

And the Yahoo Boys Plus that even use Voodoo for their scamming. It is almost a lifestyle. Using stolen pictures and identities of people of e.g. USA and Europe, e.g. The Netherlands for fraud with bitcoins, using an IP address from Amsterdam. They present themselves with stolen identities and pictures, as if they were handsome rich men, trying to conquer women and above all their money.

Studies in Germany have indicated that in several countries e-crime is increasing, and also related with deteriorating economic conditions.

Sometimes, all of a sudden a call on your mobile, phishers with a phone number from e.g. Qatar, Algeria, Oman, Sri Lanka: +213 5 58850457 (23-11-2019), +213 5 582 85 321 (23-11-2019), +213 6 63 81 0182 (30-9-2019) etc.

Where do they get your email?

A lot of scammers get email addresses from Social MediaFacebook, Instagram etc. and they first pry data on LinkedIn.

Some try to be clever and first set up a fake and void LinkedIn account. For example under the name of an ex-CEO of a multinational. Preferentially of a company that you have worked with yourself. Without any verifiable background or study and work history. Followed by some lousy, curved and crippled story that is linked to your work and profile and experience. These scammers then sent a short, message via LinkedIn. The so-called intellectual scammers. Mainly those weirdos that present themselves as a banker or financier.

About every two weeks a scam letter from so-called fake consultants, every time another name, so-called from the National Investment Corporation (NIC)Marina Mall, Al Marina, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. See an example below under 22).

Most others are kind of stupid, low education scammers. You can immediately tell from the crippled english they use, the number of typing errors. And the horrible, insane and unbelievable financial fairy tales they write up. Most of them from Africa, all kind of exotic names and places that you would never like to visit in your dear live.

Sometimes they are very resilient, though. And pop up again later. With a different funny name and email address. But with the same stupid message.

Maybe they should first take the time to read and study some literature such as Harry Potter.

Or Ernest Hemingway. To learn how to compose a nice and short essay that everyone would buy…

Or who knows, as Gabriel Garcia Marquez, the protagonist of wonderful magical realism. And who knows they could even win the Nobel Prize literature. Awarded because of “ Outstanding Anthologies of Super Stupid Scam Letters “.

Others first pry my website?

When I see in my Google Analytics, and additional related Software that detects the sender, that a visitor from an African country like Togo, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Algeria or Russia has visited my site?

Hm, hmmm, hmmm.

Most often ?

Soon afterwards I can see scam or phishing coming in.

As a rule of thumb.

Just see below the scam letters from Burkina Faso, Togo, Tunisia, Lybia, Nigeria, Russia, Malaysia etc.

Others and other places?

Lots of scammers and phishers like to invent and believe themselves that they are bankers or financiers, such as living in the Middle East. That they have a special deal for me, for you. Especially for me. Ohhh, what a lucky guy. With some fake invented address and so-called with their office situated in a luxury tower or mall in Dubai.
This while they themselves are sitting in some lousy shack in the middle of nowhere.

Or sitting on a donkey somewhere.

Usually I recommend these high flying virtual bankers and financiers most seriously to fly in their private mini jet to Schiphol Airport.

In their Gulfstream G650 of $65 million that they sure own.

So that we can have a serious F2F private business meeting? Place I always suggest ?

Headoffices of the Police Department nearby…

But ?

Never get an answer on this.

Normally I also solicit them to sent me copy of their passport, identity card, home phone number and phone numbers of 5 business persons that I could call to verify ?

Never get an answer.

Just this intelligent Togo scammer on the photo.

Most probably a stolen or fake passport and diploma.

From Brasil?

From her work email,, Goias state government.

Most iconic this one. From a government official. Mind you. Taking her precious time at work to scam others from her office. From capital Brasilia, designed by famous architect Oscar Niemeyer.
With some fake chinese name, to make me enthusiastic she hopes. And text in indonesian. Under fake name Wang Jianlin1, what a creative toxic mind this lady scammer, with text:

Halo teman, Anda telah diberikan balasan donasi untuk lebih jelasnya. Translated, Hello friends, you have been given a donation reply for more details. (Ja ja jaaaa, much better, why not, an invitation in indonesian to dance Samba on Copacabana beach…).

Should resent this email to her president Bolsonaro.

Or to ex-president Lula, who now has plenty of time. Just freed from prison where he was for corruption. Accepted e.g. his penthouse as a gift from some entrepreneur that got lucrative contracts during his government.


I also got one from a Venezuela related person or maybe Venezuelan. I noted from the typical and key Venezuelan words he (she) used. Offering some vague and corrupt business deal, as he claimed to have good and swift contacts in high echelons in the oil industry and government…

Another one with outstanding, outrageous “ corruption genes “ in his body, blood and brains. That by the way also helped to ruin his whole native country, from riches to rags in just 2 decades.

Sure, he had previously seen on LinkedIn and on my website that I lived and worked in Venezuela. So, let’s try if we can fish and catch this one.

How stupid. Who knows somewhere from a shack in Petare or Cementerio slums. Que HdP degenerado? Una rata con dos paths.

They themselves most probably are sitting in some poor shack. With a hungry stomach, probably without light, in ragged pants, a dirty T-shirt and worn-out slippers. Banging their poor brains to invent some wonderful Abrakadabra financial fairy tale.


Sometimes, from somewhere,  you get fake job offers with a most fabulous fake contract, for example so-called from a well known oil company. Normally with an email that resembles that of the firm, a stolen logo, slightly adapted and changed so that you do not note at first sight. And an email number that is almost the same one of that company, but changed with just one extra letter or symbol, as a trap. But to proceed, you are kindly asked to first deposit money for your visa to get that fake job. Ha ha haaa, how clever, pay in advance. What a toxic rats.

How to eradicate?  

Fortunately most of this mail goes automatically to the Spam box.

Others I just erase.

How to proceed? 

With those scam emails that do sneak in my normal inbox ?


If I am in the mood, if I have time, I answer most enthusiastic and inspired ?

By vomiting a boisterous river and plethora of the most horrible swearings, insults and curses that occurred and flashed-up to my poor brain during a special and magical moment of intense inspiration ?

Yes, indeed. A most memorable email I wrote to them after I had received a whole bunch of scam letters in just one day.

And ?

Resent this splendid email, sometimes up to several hundreds of times, with a copy to all the scam addresses and dearest Scammers that have written me through time. I do keep these email numbers.

Just click 100+ times on “Resent “.

Till the computer returns the message:

Mailbox of receiver full, not able to deliver “.

Mailbox of the Scammers busted. How devine.

My ” Answer Macro letter “ is always ready in my ” Starred ” email box.

Waiting most patiently for other dear scammers, to be fired and used.

And to be resent some hundred+ times.
As well as to the previous scammers that are always happily included as a cc copy. To make sure they all get it. All scammers happy together. Enjoying each others invented stupid and weird scam stories.

Does this work?

Who knows.


At least I busted their inbox.

And freaked them out for the moment being.

Maybe ?

They will soon get together and establish,

” The Non-Profit Humanitarian Organisation of Global Lousy Scammers “. Who knows.

Following, please have a look at all the garbage that these rats sent you.

  2. Best friend, My name is Mrs. Patricia Gunnarsson from Ireland, married to Late Engr George Gunnarsson {PhD}, who worked for 19 years at Tullow Oil plc, a multinational oil and gas exploration company in London, before he died on August 25, 2013. We were married 24 years without a child. My husband died after a short illness, which lasted only four days. When my late husband was still alive, he deposited $ 3,200,000 on his offshore account at Cahoot Bank London, UK. and this fund is currently at the bank, waiting for the day on which I will use it.Even before my marriage, I was a lung cancer patient and recently my doctor told me that I would not live longer than the next month as my lung cancer is now worse. What bothers me most is my stroke. After knowing my condition, I decided to look for a sincere person to donate the fund to a church or better to motherless orphanages.I’m contacting you because I want a church or an individual to use this money to fund churches, orphanages, and widows to ensure that God’s will is maintained. I made this decision because I have no child who will inherit this money.
    I can no longer rely on the family of my deceased husband because they will never use the money as God pleases. Instead, they use the money for their personal needs, and I do not want that to happen.In this regard, I sincerely ask for your support in this humanitarian work for Christ. I would like the bank to transfer this fund to your bank account so that you use 60% of the fund to help the following people: 1. The motherless babies, 2, churches. 3, widows. 4, disable people. And then use the remaining 40% of the fund for you and your family. If you accept this humanitarian work, you must promise me that you would not disappoint me if the amount is transferred to your bank account in your country. In addition, you assure me that you use the 60% of the money for the stated purposeIf you are interested in this work of God, please respond, so that I can tell you all details about the bank and how the money will be transferred to your bank account for this purpose.For more information please contact me via my private email: patriciag@mail2patricia.comYours sincerely,
    Mrs. Patricia Gunnarsson (poor Patricia, she is finally dying and leaving good money for you…ha ha haaa, what a miserable joke. What a sick and toxic Rat and mind, using God, Christ and orphanages for scamming).

  8. FRom: 15/11/2019 – PARTNERSHIP PROPOSAL. Greetings to you.I want to first request that the details of this letter be kept strictly confidential. My intention is to partner with you in the sharing of $18.41 million.
    I am Mr. Ali Abdullah, director of human resources and administration of Majid Saiyad Energy Group (MSEG). MSEG has just concluded the building project of a $92.41 million Health Research Facility in Wien, Austria which will be launched on the 3rd of December 2019. As the main member in the Project Contract Review Panel (PCRP), I am solely responsible for approving budget figures and contractor payout.During the project initiation, my colleague and I over-invoiced the construction supply invoice by a total of $18.41 million. We feel this amount is well deserved considering our input to the general growth of MSEG. Now that the project has been concluded, the over-invoiced amount is deposited with an offshore bank awaiting claim by authorized project contractor.Since we are directly linked to MSEG we cannot establish a claim on the funds as this will raise suspicion and a cause for unnecessary investigation into the project finance.
    We desperately seek your consent to present you as an authorized project contractor to enable you claim the over-invoiced amount ($18.41 million) and further remit payment to us. We are willing to compensate you with a sum of $2million for your partnership.This venture is 100% risk free and we DO NOT require any financial commitment from you. All expenses required to successfully complete the transaction will be covered by us.Your urgent response will be appreciated. You may contact me by email; aliabdullahmajidsaiyadenergy@gmail.comThank you for your attention, Hope to hearing from you soonest.Sincerely, Ali Abdullah Director Human Resources & Administration. (Ha ha haaa, another AliBaba Camel from the Desert…)

18) Another toxic Rat…Natacha Lorna Ms Anders, – on 11 June 2020.

My beloved one,

am writing this mail to you with tears and sorrow from my heart. I am
Natacha Lorna Chepkrmoi Laboso, a 23 years old girl from Kenya, My
Mother was Late Lorna Chepkrmoi Laboso the former Kenyan Assistant
Minister of Home and affairs, who was among the plan that crashed in a
remote area called Kalong’s, in western Kenya.The plane crashed
occurred on Tuesday 10th, June, 2008. You can read more about the
crash with the below website.
WORLD/africa/06/10/kenya. crash/index.html

After the burial of my late Mother, my stepmother and my uncles
conspired and sold my Mother’s properties to an Expert rate in
Switzerland which the shared the money among themselves and left me
nothing, One faithful morning, I opened my Mother’s briefcase and
found out a documents that my Late Mother deposited a huge amount of
money in Coris bank Burkina Faso with my name as the next of kin.

After then I visit Burkina Faso to withdraw the money for a better
life so that I can take care of myself and start a new life, on my arrival over there, the Bank Director whom I meet in person Mr. Batish
Zongo told me that my Mother left an instruction to the bank, that the
money should be release to me when I am married or I present a trustee
who will help me and invest the money overseas. That is the reason why
I am in search of an honest and reliable person who will help me and
stand as my trustee for the Bank to transfer the money to his bank

I will like you to help me to relocate to your country because my
stepmother has threatened to assassinate me once she knows my where
about. The amount is($9.4 USD nine point four million United State

22. Arbitral Award of 3 October 1899 – Guyana v. Venezuela: Report ICJ (1/9/2018-31-7/2019)

22. Arbitral Award of 3 October 1899 (Guyana v. Venezuela: Report ICJ (1/9/2018-31-7/2019)  V.31.10.19

Judge Abdulqawi Ahmed Yusuf, President of the ICJ, addressed the United Nations General Assembly in New York yesterday on the occasion of the presentation of the Court’s Annual Report 2018-2019.

  1. The Annual Report of the Court:

2. The full text of the address of the President:



12. Arbitral Award of 3 October 1899 (Guyana v. Venezuela) – p44-46/69

207. On 29 March 2018, Guyana filed an Application instituting proceedings against the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.

208. In its Application, Guyana requested the Court “to confirm the legal validity and binding effect of the Award Regarding the Boundary between the Colony of British Guiana and the United States of Venezuela, of 3 October 1899”. The Applicant claimed that the 1899 Award was “‘a full, perfect, and final settlement’ of all questions

44/69 (19-13600)


relating to determining the boundary line between the colony of British Guiana and Venezuela”.

209. Guyana asserted that between November 1900 and June 1904, a joint Anglo- Venezuelan Boundary Commission had “identified, demarcated and permanently fixed the boundary established by the … Award” before the signing of a Joint Declaration by the Commissioners on 10 January 1905 (referred to as “the 1905 Agreement”).

210. Guyana contended that, in 1962, for the first time, Venezuela had contested the Award as “arbitrary” and “null and void”. This, according to the Applicant, had led to the signing of the Agreement to resolve the controversy between Venezuela and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland over the frontier between Venezuela and British Guiana at Geneva on 17 February 1966, which “provided for recourse to a series of dispute settlement mechanisms to finally resolve the controversy”.

211. Guyana further submitted that the Geneva Agreement had authorized the United Nations Secretary-General to decide which appropriate dispute resolution mechanism to adopt for the peaceful settlement of the dispute, in accordance with Article 33 of the United Nations Charter. According to the Applicant:

“On 30 January 2018, … Secretary-General [H.E.] António Guterres determined that the good offices process had failed to achieve a peaceful settlement of the controversy. He then took a formal and binding decision, under Article IV, paragraph 2 of the Agreement, to choose a different means of settlement under Article 33 of the Charter. In identical letters to both Parties, he communicated the terms of his decision that, pursuant to the authority vested in him by the Geneva Agreement, the controversy shall be settled by recourse to the International Court of Justice.”

212. In its Application, filed “pursuant to the Secretary-General’s decision”, Guyana requested the Court to adjudge and declare that:

“(a) The 1899 Award [was] valid and binding upon Guyana and Venezuela, and the boundary established by that Award and the 1905 Agreement [was] valid and binding upon Guyana and Venezuela;

  1. (b)  Guyana enjoy[ed] full sovereignty over the territory between the Essequibo River and the boundary established by the 1899 Award and the 1905 Agreement, and Venezuela enjoy[ed] full sovereignty over the territory west of that boundary; Guyana and Venezuela [were] under an obligation to fully respect each other’s sovereignty and territorial integrity in accordance with the boundary established by the 1899 Award and the 1905 Agreement;
  2. (c)  Venezuela [had to] immediately withdraw from and cease its occupation of the eastern half of the Island of Ankoko, and each and every other territory which [was] recognized as Guyana’s sovereign territory in accordance with the 1899 Award and 1905 Agreement;
  3. (d)  Venezuela [had to] refrain from threatening or using force against any person and/or company licensed by Guyana or engage in economic or commercial activity in Guyanese territory as determined by the 1899 Award and 1905 Agreement, or in any maritime areas appurtenant to such territory over which Guyana ha[d] sovereignty or exercise[d] sovereign rights, and shall not interfere with any Guyanese or Guyanese-authorised activities in those areas;
  4. (e)  Venezuela [was] internationally responsible for violations of Guyana’s sovereignty and sovereign rights, and for all injuries suffered by Guyana as a consequence.”

46/69 (A/74/4)

213. By an Order dated 19 June 2018, the Court decided that the written pleadings in the case must first address the question of the jurisdiction of the Courtand fixed 19 November 2018 and 18 April 2019as the respective time-limits for the filing of a Memorial by Guyana and a Counter-Memorial by the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.

214. The Court took this decision following a meeting held on 18 June 2018 with representatives of the parties.

215. The Memorial of Guyana was filedwithin the time-limit thus fixed.

  • My own notes and musings, as a simple petroleum exploration geologist.

a) Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela did not file a Counter-Memorial.

As they already previously indicated they do not consider that ICJ has the jurisdiction to rule and decide on this ” Controversy “.

So, what is ahead ?

All the time and money spent via ICJ was lost, for nothing ?

Who is going to decide ?

Who has jurisdiction ?

b) What would Hugo Grotius have  thought or said on this subject?

He was one of the first to formulate the international society doctrine.

As well as one of the first to define expressly the idea of one society of states, governed not by force or warfare.

But by actual laws and mutual agreement to enforce those laws.

c) Hugo Grotius, famous Dutch jurist: De Indis and Mare Liberum

Hugo Grotius - Delft -
Hugo Grotius – Delft, his native town. – He lived on Oude Langedijk, near to the Nieuwe Kerk. The house does not exist anymore. But was probably located in the area of this, my own, picture.

18. Gabriél García Marquez, Última Carta después de Cien Años de Soledad

Gabriél García Marquez
Gabriél García Marquez

Por aventurarme a leer Cien Años de Soledad quedé atrapado en Cien Años de GaboLectura.

Un peregrinaje con los ojos. Parecido al peregrinaje a Santiago de Compostela desde Roncesvalles ?

Total 127 185 palabras. Nueve horas de lectura, con una velocidad de 250 palabras por minuto. Cien Años de Felicidad.


Contagiado felízmente por la GaboMania ?

Finales años setenta, Lugdunum Batavorum, o sea simplemente Leiden, Holanda. No, librería Kooyker en Breestraat no lo tenía. todavía estaba por ser inventado. Tocó viajar en tren a Amsterdam, librería Atheneum. La primera edición fue en Buenos Aires, 8000 libros en mayo 1967. Conseguí la edición 48, de diciembre 1976, en español. Actualmente ya tiene mas de 100 ediciones, 50 millones vendidos y traducidos en 50 lenguas.

La edición en ruso compré también ?

 En Los Tiempos del Socialismo. En los Tiempos de La Guerra Fría. En los Tiempos de Setenta y Cinco Años Comunismo. CCCP, 8 Novyy Arbat, Moscú 119019, una de sus avenidas icónicas. Kalinin Prospect se llamaba entonces.

Donde Moskovskiy Dom Knigi o Moscow House of Books, la gigantesca y mas famosa librería de Moscú. Un paraíso para bibliófilos. De veras. La mejor librería que había visitado. Sitio oficial donde se podía comprar también auténticos íconos históricos rusos.

Casualidad ?

 Buscando el libro en la descomunal Dom Knigi encontré y conversé con unos estudiantes de Colombia, radicados en Moscú. Ellos me indicaron donde encontrar la edición rusa.

Moscú y Siberia, por negocios petroleros, mayo 1992 ?

Tiempos de Glasnost y Perestroika, La Apertura y la Re-estructuración de Michael Gorbachov. El tan adorado comunismo casi hecho añicos. CCCP en vías de transmutarse al tan detestado capitalismo.

Finales de los setenta GGM se perfilaba firmemente como un importante escritor global. Fue inefugable, tenía que proseguir leyendo todos sus otros libros. Once novelas, doce cuentos y 22 no-ficciones. Mientras se fueran publicando, siempre entre los primeros en comprarlos.

Gratamente me motivó adicionalmente para visitar muchos sitios curiosos cuales fueron inspiración, escenario y el entorno de los relatos de GGM.

Caracas, Cuando era felíz  e indocumentado.

Paris, rue Cujas 16, hôtel de Flandres, ou il écrivit en 1956 ses romans Pas de lettre pour le colonel et La mala hora.

Cartagena, El amor en los tiempos del cólera.

Noreste de Colombia, territorio de numerosos de sus relatos. Valledupar con su Festival de la Leyenda Vallenata. La parranda del siglo, la máxima fiesta de la cultura folclórica popular que se celebra todos los años a finales de abril. Donde se reúnen los mejores compositores e intérpretes de los diferentes aires del vallenato, el merengue, la puya, el paseo y el son.

” Cien años de soledad no es más que un intento por escribir un vallenato de 450 páginas “, 

indicó GGM en una entrevista. Tremendo vallenato es ese, que lo cuenta todo.

La saga de la familia Buendía y el rosario de historias de Macondo eran una forma escrita de contar lo que cantaban los juglares vallenatos al son del acordeón.

” Garcia Marquez elevó el vallenato a las alturas del mito cuando lo incorporó a Cien anos de soledad. Uno de sus entrañables personajes, Aureliano Segundo, se echa a perder por culpa del acordeón. Instrumento que su madre Ursula Iguarán considera propio de los vagabundos herederos de Francisco el Hombre.

Hipnotizado por las parrandas, el trago y las mujeres, abandona su hogar y a su esposa, la cachaca Fernanda del Carpio, y se marcha tras el eco de las cajas y guacharacas “(Daniel Samper Pizano, 17 abril 2014, El Tiempo).

Festival Vallenato, Valledupar
Festival Vallenato, Valledupar

” Caballero, permitame felicitarte “, lo dije durante la tremenda parranda espontánea que se armó en momentos de la cena en nuestro hotel mutuo. “ No soy experto en esta materia, pero simplemente escucho que usted es un acordeonista de clase exceptional.

Claro que si !

Soy el Rey de Reyes del Festival de la Leyenda Vallenata 2006, nos dijo con singular humildad y cortesía. Mucho gusto, un gran placer. Aquí te doy mi tarjeta. Desde ahora ustedes están invitados a todas mis parrandas y actuaciones durante este Festival “.

Hipnotizado por los 7 días de parrandas y por culpa del acordeón yo mismo casi me echo a perder y me marcho tras el eco de las cajas y guacharacas. En aquel imborrable Festival de la Leyenda Vallenata en Valledupar.

El único y primer músico de vallenato cachaco y del interior del país que se ha impuesto en Valledupar. Hoy en día es nuestro entrañable amigo.

Alberto Jamaica Larrota


 Siempre se dijo que cuando GGM era pobre y desconocido, había cantado vallenatos en las calles de Paris. Como recurso para recoger algunos francos en los momentos mas duros de su estancia en Europa. Así lo relata su amigo de siempre Plinio Apuleyo Mendoza.

Atrapado estuve yo también para estudiar libros escritos sobre el y su obra.  Biografías, entrevistas, anécdotas, películas y programas televisivos.

 Aún me toca leer la tesis doctoral de Mario Vargas Llosa, 667 páginas sobre García Márquez: historia de un deicidio. Su amigo con quien tenía una particular amistad ? Hasta aquel gran disgusto en cual terminó para siempre la buena relación con su compadre.

” The infamous incident outside a cinema in Mexico City when MVL punched GGM in the face during their argument about Cuba.”

Cien Años de Soledad - Gabriél García Marquez
Cien Años de Solэdad – Gabriél García Marquez – Mi ejemplar. Esta portada no salió en la primera impresión, sino después en una que se le había comisionado al artista mexicano Vicente Rojo. Era una referencia al juego de dados que se llama ” Macondo “, como el pueblo de “Cien años de soledad”. Al empezar a recibir la edición, muchos libreros comenzaron a quejarse porque una “e” aparecía invertida. “Decían: ‘Me llegó la edición, pero con un problema, es que la ‘e’ está mal impresa”. Varios hasta llegaron a devolver ejemplares. Sin embargo, había sido una decisión de Rojo. Se empezó a vender de una manera que el propio García Márquez no entendía, que nadie entendía. Nota: actualmente la utilización de letras invertidas es muy común, para atraer la atención.

Cuando Garcia Marquez falleció en Ciudad Mexico ?

Este jueves 17 abril 2014 y después estuve en Colombia. Por la cual tuve la espléndida oportunidad y buena suerte de poder seguir durante varios días una extensa serie de programas, entrevistas, anécdotas inéditas hasta este momento y actos conmemorativas en la television, radio y prensa escrita. Pude palpar la influencia masiva que el tuvo en su país natal.

Fascinación por el realismo mágico de Gabriél García Marquez, tal como tantos otros 50 millones de lectores.

” The last days of Gabriel Garcia Marquez “ (May 31, 2021):

The last days of Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Lo siguiente aparentemente es la última carta de Gabriel García Márquez, escrito para todos sus amigos.

La Ultima Carta

Cuando Gabriel García Márquez se retira de la vida pública por padecer cáncer linfático, envió una carta de despedida a sus amigos, y gracias a internet está siendo difundida.

Es verdaderamente conmovedora; está escrita por él; uno de los latinoamericanos más brillantes de los últimos tiempos.

Dice así:

“ Si por un instante Dios se olvidara de que soy una marioneta de trapo y me regalara un trozo de vida, aprovecharía ese tiempo lo más que pudiera, posiblemente no diría todo lo que pienso, pero en definitiva pensaría todo lo que digo.

Daría valor a las cosas, no por lo que valen, sino por lo que significan.

Dormiría poco, soñaría más, entiendo que por cada minuto que cerramos los ojos, perdemos sesenta segundos de luz.

Andaría cuando los demás se detienen, despertaría cuando los demás duermen.

Si Dios me obsequiara un trozo de vida, vestiría sencillo, me tiraría de bruces al sol, dejando descubierto, no solamente mi cuerpo, sino mi alma.

A los hombres les probaría cuán equivocados están al pensar que dejan de enamorarse cuando envejecen, sin saber que envejecen cuando dejan de enamorarse.

A un niño le daría alas, pero le dejaría que él sólo aprendiese a volar.

A los viejos les enseñaría que la muerte no llega con la vejez, sino con el olvido.

Tantas cosas he aprendido de ustedes, los hombres…. 

He aprendido que todo el mundo quiere vivir en la cima de la montaña, sin saber que la verdadera felicidad está en la forma de subirla escarpada.

Me apartaría de los necios, los habladores, de las gentes con malas costumbres y actitudes.

Sería siempre honesto y mantendría llenas de amor y de atenciones a las personas a mi alrededor, siempre trataría de dar lo mejor…

He aprendido que cuando un recién nacido aprieta con su pequeño puño, por primera vez, el dedo de su padre, lo tiene atrapado por siempre.

He aprendido que un hombre sólo tiene derecho a mirar a otro hacia abajo, cuando ha de ayudarle a levantarse.

Son tantas cosas las que he podido aprender de ustedes, pero realmente de mucho no habrá de servir, porque cuando me guarden dentro de esa maleta, infelizmente me estaré muriendo.

Trata de decir siempre lo que sientes y haz siempre lo que piensas en lo más profundo de tu corazón.

Si supiera que hoy fuera la última vez que te voy a ver dormir, te abrazaría fuertemente y rezaría al Señor para poder ser el guardián de tu alma.

Si supiera que estos son los últimos minutos que te veo, te diría “Te Quiero” y no asumiría, tontamente, que ya lo sabes.

Siempre hay un mañana y la vida nos da siempre otra oportunidad para hacer las cosas bien, pero por si me equivoco y hoy es todo lo que nos queda, me gustaría decirte cuánto te quiero, que nunca te olvidaré.

El mañana no le está asegurado a nadie, joven o viejo. 

Hoy puede ser la última vez que veas a los que amas. 

Por eso no esperes más, hazlo hoy, ya que si mañana nunca llega, seguramente lamentarás el día que no tomaste tiempo para una sonrisa, un abrazo, un beso y que estuviste muy ocupado para concederles un último deseo.

Mantén a los que amas cerca de ti, diles al oído lo mucho que los necesitas, quiérelos y trátalos bien, toma tiempo para decirles, “lo siento”, “perdóname”, “por favor” , “gracias” y todas las palabras de amor que conoces.

Nadie te recordará por tus nobles pensamientos secretos. Pide al Señor la fuerza y sabiduría para expresarlos.

Finalmente, demuestra a tus amigos y seres queridos cuánto te importan.

*Gabriel García Márquez* “,

Pásalo a quién te importe, si no mañana será igual que ayer y les habrás privado de leer este texto lleno de sabiduría.

19. Amsterdam Vineyard

Vineyards, wine makers?

France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Argentina, Chile, California etc.?


Amsterdam, near Schiphol airport.

Amsteltuin Vineyard, the best kept secret of Amsterdam,

PGK (Petroleum Geologische Kring, The Hague, the Netherlands) 40th  birthday was celebrated with a splendid summer excursion and appropriate educative oenology meeting, august 2018.

I wish to share a few of my notes, musings and pictures with you.

As a geologist it is of course about the geology and terroir of this area, and its relationship with the wines here produced.

Amsteltuin Vineyard has some 3500 grape vines, allowing for about 4000 bottles of different (4), excellent, mainly white wines. More information can be found on their site below indicated.

The  Netherlands has some 40 vineyards and wine makers that produce about 1 million bottles of good quality wine.

Vinyard De Amsteltuin

Geology Vinyard Surroundings
Geology de Amstel Vineyard Surroundings (based on data from Vos, 2015) -Location, Bovenkerkerpolder, south of Amsterdam, Amstelveen, in NE map quadrant. Dark brown stands for moss peat (mosveen). The upper layer consisted mainly of peat (Holland Veen). Much of the peat has been removed and mined for heating of the houses, in the last centuries.

Terroir Vinyard Amstelland
Terroir Vineyard de Amsteltuin, Bovenkerkerpolder, Cross-section. The surface and shallow subsurface consists of Holocene sediments (11.700 B.C – present day). Made up of salty sands, clays (Calais Formation) overlain by peat (Holland Veen). The sands and clays belong to the marine, transgressive, Calais formation that is about 5 meters thick.  Calais deposition ended 1800 B.C. From then on formation and deposition of the peat (Holland Veen) began. Most of it has been mined and removed such as for heating of the houses. Presence of “ sedimentary  “ peat as part of the terroir is rather unique. On a list of 45 vineyard soil types (Sotheby Wine Encyclopedia 2015) I have not encountered any original peat influenced/dominated terroir, as Amstelland Vineyard. Any wine connoisseur around that can explain the specific influence of the peat? If any? How to recognize its input as well as those of the marine salty sands and clays on the smell, aroma, perfume and bouquet of these typical Dutch wines ? Many thanks in advance. FYI: Lignite (intermediate between peat and coal) is used, but as a fertilizer in Germany and in the Champagne.

How does the peat in the terroir influence and determine the specific taste of Souvignier Adriana ? Any connoisseur around that can answer this (sub)surface question?
Vinyard De Amsteltuin
Vineyard de Amsteltuin- Circa 6-7 meters below sealevel – Probaby one the lowest vinyards and wine cellar in the world – Fermentation vessels.

Please visit their website. For a description of the really excellent wine that they produce and that we tasted and discussed during our meeting.

Though The Netherlands is not (yet) known as a wine producer. Dutchies do produce a few really excellent wines that already have reached an international standard and high level (…similar to their soccer players and trainers, e.g.).

Website de Amsteltuin

Cheers, Proost !

Questions and Musings.

  1. Vineyard de Amsteltuin has a unique vineyard geology (bedrock and overlying soils). Geology determines some of the physical parameters that affect vine performance. That could help to explain the typicity of the wines. The Amsteltuin terroir is different from most other wine producing areas in the world. In the first place because it contains peat as a natural surface, soil and shallow subsurface constituent. It is virtually flat, horizontal and located at some 6 meters below sealevel, in a typical Dutch polder. As such water is always available in the Amsteltuin vineyard substrate. The water level and drainage is strictly and splendidly regulated by the water management system of the polder (Regional Water and Polder Authority).
  2. How does the peat in the terroir influence and determine the specific taste of Souvignier Adriana ? Any wine connoisseur around that can answer this complex and highly sophisticated (sub)surface and oenological question?
  3. Or ?

    ” Finally, the notion of being able to actually taste the vineyard geology in the wine – a goût de terroir – arises partly through various misunderstandings of geological terminology and, presumably, through the sheer romance of the idea. Certainly the vision makes good journalistic copy, and is manifestly a powerful marketing tactic, geology being one of the few factors involved in wine production that cannot be translocated or easily replicated elsewhere. However, the proposition is wholly fanciful for a number of reasons and in any literal way is scientifically impossible.” Alex Maltman, 2017.

  4. Or?                                                                                                                                                The geology of wine is important to the wine-maker, but of very little importance to the drinker. However, a geologist with an interest in wine is almost inevitably going to take more than a passing interest in what lies beneath vineyards. This may have resulted in the importance of the geology being over-rated. Many wine writers who are not geologists have dutifully described the geology associated with particular wine regions without actually stating how the geology is important. Jake Hancock was quick to realize that a lot of what is written about geology in wine books is at best misguided and at worst utterly wrong, and set about putting this to rights at every opportunity. Vines derive most of their nourishment from a depth extending down to 0.6 m, but will, most of the time, rely on water from down as far as 2 m for transpiration. Only during periods of drought will they draw significant water from >2 m. Clearly then, in areas where there is a deep cover of drift or a deep soil horizon, geological influence on vines will be minimal. Even where the soil is thin, geology will, in many areas where vines are grown, only control the quality of the grapes indirectly through influence on soil composition, geomorphology and water retention. These factors will be examined, together with examples of instances where geology does have a direct influence on wine quality.

  5. But? ” It is for the most part less contentious to speak of terroir when we talk about peat. Anyone who drinks Scotch whisky will likely be familiar with peat; that earthy-smoky flavour present in many whiskies (Islay in particular) that is acquired when the germinating barley is dried over a fire fuelled by this source.Fewer will be aware of exactly what this material is.  Peat is a built up mixture of partially decayed vegetation and organic matter formed in wetlands where the obstructed flow of oxygen slows the rate of decomposition. Peat is essentially formed from whatever vegetation grows in a particular area, meaning peat bogs in different regions will be composed from different material, and hence it is feasible that the smoke produced from its burning will be chemically distinct (and more relevant for the whisky lover will produce different aromas).

  9. Geographical location and history of Bovenkerkerpolder where Vineyard de Amsteltuin is located (from Wikipedia): 
  10. Bovenkerkerpolder is een polder in en ten zuiden van Amstelveen en ten oosten van Bovenkerk. In het noorden grenst het gebied aan de Middelpolder en in het oosten aan de Amstel. Het noordelijke deel van de polder is bebouwd. In het zuidelijk deel van de polder, tussen de Nesserlaan en de Hollandse Dijk, wordt de grond agrarisch gebruikt op de oude kavels uit 1760.
  11. Geschiedenis. Tot 1639 werd er turf gestoken in de polder en ontstond er een waterplas tussen de Bovenkerkerweg (west) en de Amsteldijk (oost). Later vormde het water een bedreiging voor Amstelveen en Amsterdam. Daarom werd op 7 september 1764 door de Staten van Holland en West-Friesland octrooi verleend voor het verder uitvenen en droogmaken van de plas. Het droogmaken gebeurde door elf molens. Uiteindelijk viel de polder in 1769 droog.

” Pre-Hydrocarbon burning & CO2 emission time “.


Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague? Still under construction by Mother Nature, in-statu-nascendi, being deposited and molded by mother Nature.

Laying, within others, the foundations for their most prosperous Future-17th Century- Golden Age-2-come.

Having to wait another 2000 years for the wheel to be invented, in Mesopotamia (=Iraq, Syria, Turkey).
