A step to freedom..
At the Río de la Plata, there is a special place, a small island in the middle of it, between Argentina and Uruguay..
Martin Garcia, its name.
With a diverse and beautiful geography, it is more well known for being witness of many facts of our history... battles for our independence at the river... famous political prisoners..
There was, also a common prison. When it was closed, its inside was destroyed, but they kept the walls, the windows and gates..
When I saw it, I imagined the feeling of those leaving... and I remembered something i read long ago..
"As a fish only knows what water means, when it is taken out of it.. a man can only know the whole meaning of freedom when he looses it"
