I was born in Lafayette, Indiana. In the 12th. day of August 1955. I was about four years old when my father finished his Ph. D. in Plant Geneticts at Purdue University. What was then the family, returned to Mexico. I grew and the family grew and when I was about 10 years old, something really changed the way I saw things in life. A big change came to our whole life.

We moved to the other side of the world. A whole different strange world. Everything that you can imagine was different. From the very first step I took out of the airplane. The smell of the enviroment was different, as it is different in each and every airport in the whole wide world. There was no vehicular trams to pull the luggage, there were camels guided by a man who only had a blanket wrapped around his waist. There were vultures flying towards one end of the airport. Everything was appealing to my curiosity. The clothing was different, it varied amongst men. Some of the clothing was different. The pants that men wore were very loose. Women also wore pants under their dresses. The policemen had white uniforms and some used eyeliner. What we consider rude manners during a meal like for example burping, was considered a sign of good digestion and meant that you enjoyed it and it was something good. The food was good and spicy, and the way the food was eaten you did not need any cutlery. You could eat it with your fingers since you start out with washed hands. It is good to enjoy your finger with good tasty food and it is better when you are just a kid. Everything was great back in my young days. The new school was outstanding since I had not coexisted with beings from the opposite gender since I came out of Kindergarten. English was tutored by one of the smartest girls in the class. Later on, someone assigned a very kind old lady who put me to read and read and read until by the end of that school year I was pretty fluent with my fellow students in English.

Well, I can't go on with so many details. We arrived to what was then West Pakistan just a few day after a war had ended with the neighboring country and there were a lot of United Nations military vehicles on the streets. And, . . . well to make a long story short, we moved on four years later. We missed that part of the world and moved on to Beirut, Lebanon what an oasis a paradise in the Middle East. It was there at the American Community School of Beirut where a finished my middle school years. When we moved bach to Mexico, I finished my High School in Northern Mexico at the Instituto Tecnologico the Estudios Superiores de Monterey. Later, I did four semester of Biochemistry Engineering but dropped out because I did not do it in Thermodynamics, it was not the applied Calculus, . . . well let's continue. I then moved to a different field it was Agronomy Engineering, were my mayor was Animal Science and Range Management with a minor in Agriculture Production. After being in Biochemistry four semesters this was like mashed potatoes. You know what I mean...
