Elena And I Celebrate 16 Years Together Today

Elena and I celebrate 16 years together today. In Buenos Aires she had it made in life. She was a medical doctor and cancer specialist. She had a beautiful condominium that was “free and clear.” She had a new car that was paid for. She had a nice family who loved her. She gave up this assured life to come 7,000 miles to a strange country where she didn’t speak the language perfectly. She was coming to live with a man twelve years older than her. I did not make a lot of money or have great prospects in life. We loved each other but were also very different. Elena took a giant risk. It worked out. Elena thank you for the best 16 years of my life!!!


About tatamkuluafrica

I am a man who has lived n 6 of the 7 continents. I first arrived in Africa on April 18, 1981. Africa has been a part of my life since. I spent 8 months living in a Xhosa village in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. I was given he nickname Tatamkulu Africa. In Xhosa it means "Grandfather Africa." In April of 1994 I was allowed to vote in the first democratic election in South Africa..I was honored to be part of such a historical moment. It was a beautiful and a magical day.
