This is Carlos González. We’ve known each other by sight for well over 20 years. I remember many times returning exhausted after evening English classes and being soothed by his lovely guitar playing as I passed him on my way home. These days I pass him on my tapas tours and clients are always charmed.
Then one day a couple of months ago we saw each other in the street, in a different part of town and we both stopped – suddenly both out of context – and then I said… “hey, I know you!”. And we started to chat. You can find Carlos almost every evening in the Plaza del Triunfo next to the Cathedral in Sevilla. Stop by and listen (and buy one of his CDs!). He’s a lovely man and a brilliant guitarist.
August 5th 1993 was Sunny’s birthday. He was born into my hands when I was living in Salamanca, and he died in my arms in Sevilla 16 years later. His name suited him so well because he had such a sunny personality, and he truly was the sunshine of my life. Such a loving and darling boy, a total pleasure to have around. Still miss you big guy… xx
