Thinking and living in a professional future, knowing that it exists thanks to your past, to your origins. This book tells about a period of time in the author's life while he was in Cuba, from his childhood, when he focused on his studies, until he got his doctorate in Medicine. His work drags us into an adventure, formed by his own experiences, from his childhood to his degree. He makes us aware of the events that belong to different phases of his life, in a Cuba and in a Camagüey during the years that follow the Cuban Revolution. The book recreates illuminating and disturbing moments of an emblematic historical period, through testaments and anectodes. It shows us a colorful, scenting, tasteful era on one side, and an age full of fights, victories and profound changes, on the other. The author, accompanied by his loved ones, his closest friends, and those who have been guiding him througout his cultural path, reminds us what devoting to medical studies and work means, without forgetting the most important thing for all of us, as human beings: to live our life.
