Personal Quote:

I think the only positive thing that came from Uruguay's dictatorship was the spread of Montevideo natives around the world, and I continued writing about them from my various places of exile.


In 1973, he joined thousands of other Uruguayans and fled the military dictatorship. He spent 12 years living in exile in Havana, Madrid, Lima, and Buenos Aires. See more »
