Once I've been to a general’s farm in a Latin American Country, and I was really astonished by watching his grandkids play with an armed guard…Small girls of four or five years old...I had the feeling I’ve fallen directly inside one of Gabriel Garcia Marques’ (Nobel Prize) novels! I couldn’t believe in my own eyes and the image never left my mind. When I was writing Lara’s Journal I simple had to use that scene!
Lara's Journal two chapters
Several women sat on deck chairs, drinks in hand, while two little girls played near another armed security guard. As Simone watched, he arranged his rifle on his shoulder and took one of the girls by her hands and spun her around. The children giggled, obviously having a blast.
