Where in the World is Roberto Murillo Martin Gomez?

He’s at the beach,

around the military,

 in the classroom,

hey and there he is with former President Bill Clinton,

he’s at the hotel,


and the bus stop,

and there he is on the bridge….

Roberto Murillo Martin Gomez seems to be everywhere in his hometown of Cartagena de Indias, Colombia.

“Libri, libri freschi, libri belli!” (Books! Fresh books! Beautiful books!) is his call and as you can see he pushes his Literary Cart with purpose.

La Carreta Literaria ¡Leamos! (The Literary Cart! Read!) is first ballot bookmobile hall of fame.
