Cuando llegue el momento

Luis Iguchi Iguchi

Una antigua canción mexicana me hace acordar aquellos viejos momentos ya vividos. La tendencia de todo lo nuestro es vivir de acuerdo con lo que llegue y los años, aquellos que ya se fueron. Vivirán siempre en ese espectacular rincón donde la memoria nos dibuja lo maravilloso que fue nuestra …

Hope in the AELU

Luis Iguchi Iguchi

To think about the year 1953 is to be at the beginning of the 69 years that the La Unión Stadium or AELU as it is known celebrates this year. I was thirteen years old and lived in the city of Jauja. I remember that every so often two oyisanes …

Goodbye, friend Paquito

Luis Iguchi Iguchi

Time is the only thing that projects us and gives us the end of things. In it we have the years lived and the years to come. Age is the regulation of our principles and we know that in the end the light will go out and everything will remain …

The way to play

Luis Iguchi Iguchi

The blue of the sky

Luis Iguchi Iguchi

Jauja, the mirror of a past

Luis Iguchi Iguchi

Jauja: Return to my past

Luis Iguchi Iguchi
