spitting in the mirror…

When Galeano speaks of Latin America, I think of Lebanon and the Arab World…

“…Latin America is still an engima in its own eyes. What image does the mirror reveal? A broken one. Pieces. Pieces disconnected from each other: a mutilated body, a face to be put together. And we are trained to spit in the mirror.” (Galeano. ‘We Say No‘ page 214.)
