Exiliado en Buckingham Palace

Este relato parte de un lugar detrás de la Cordillera de los Andes, en el sur de una larga, angosta y maravillosa faja de tierra pronta a zambullirse en el Océano Pacífico; franja hostigada por erupciones volcánicas, lengüeteada por tsunamis, sacudida por los terremotos más violentos del planeta y en ocasiones fustigada por deplorables acciones …
