Alberto Guaita Tello

Alberto Guaita Tello was born in 1976, in Zaragoza, Spain. He spent his first seven years, which he remembers as “gray but happy,” in the cities of Madrid and Calahorra. The rest of his childhood and his early teens were spent in Cameroon, at the missions his parents administered in that country. There, together with his brothers and sister, he experienced complete cultural immersion and enjoyed endless hours of listening to stories and legends. He soon began to invent his own tales to share in the storytelling sessions, which usually occurred around an open fire somewhere in the jungle.
