Hotel Nómada

By Cees Nooteboom

Éste es un libro dedicado a los viajeros, a quienes entienden el viaje como un modo de conocerse a sí mismo y no como una huida; a quienes creen que a viajar se aprende, como se aprende a leer, a amar, a morir. En este libro Cees Nooteboom nos lleva a conocer su condición de nómada, en una serie de viajes a través del tiempo por Gambia, Malí, el Sahara, Bolivia y México. «Sigo construyendo mi lodge, ese inexistente edificio que sólo existe en mi cabeza, el lodge del mundo próximo y lejano, de los angeles ciudad y del silencio, del frío y del calor.» Nómadas somos todos porque el origen de los angeles existencia es el movimiento: por eso el viaje es una experiencia que no tiene fin. Sólo tenemos que aprender a no temerla.
