  6. Congrats to all of the winners!!
    Gabriel, you are one of the kindest people that I have had the honor of meeting. (You and Gaby)
    You deserve this!

    P.S. How are you feeling?

  7. Nata, thank you. I can't believe I was chosen.

    Frenchkys, thank you for your kind words.

    Jessica_in_Rome, I also asked; it seems it's going to be published in the paper version only. But USA Today is probably the newspaper with biggest circulation, so you can bet it's going to pay off!

    Biddie, thank you for asking. I'm feeling terribly today. I only managed to sleep 3 hours between Friday and Saturday, and about four hours (with many interruptions) last night. I'm very tired and my nose is still swollen. I really hope I get better soon...

  8. Do you have any painkillers? I have a couple here, if you need something to help you sleep tonight. Just let me know :)

  9. Oh, no, thanks, they gave me some pretty strong ones. The problem is not the pain (only), but the fact that I couldn't breathe through my nose, so swollen it was.

    But it's slightly better now, and I could even take a couple of breathes already.

  13. Jorge, Alfonso, muchas gracias.

    Yo les recomiendo que lean la historia del que ganó el primer premio, y no importa lo que piensen sobre ese conflicto en particular, la historia los va a mover seguro.

    El autor se enteró de que había ganado el 1er premio hoy. Por mí! :-)

  14. Estimado Gabriel, esta historia del primer premio debe ser conocida por todos. Sugiero la traduscas para que podamos linkear a nuestros amigos, con el debido permiso de su autor.

  15. No es mala la idea, Jorge. Voy a hablar con Bokjae para ver si está de acuerdo.

    Translation: "My dear friend Gabriel I think that you deserve this prize because I know all the dedication that you put in everything you do. I really wish that next year you're gonna be in the top three and why not the #1.

    This, for sure, are the kind of things that help us to keep moving forward.
