Film dan Buku #1

Dear mom… Buenos Aires is behind us
behind is as also the miserable life
the faculty, the exams and the dissertations that make you sleepy
Before us lies all of Latin America
From now on we will only trust in “La Poderosa”
I wish you could see us. We look like adventurers and inspire admiration and envy everywhere

Jika saja kuturuti isi surat (metafora) Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara kepada ibunya dalam film The Motorcycle Diaries, bisa-bisa folder tesisku tak akan pernah ada. Sekarang juga belum ada.

La Poderosa (the Powerful) adalah motor tua –Norton 500– yang rusak ditengah perjalanan ketika dikendarai oleh Che Guevara dan Alberto Granado. Kisah mereka dalam perjalanan sejauh 8000 km menyusuri Amerika Latin tersebut sangat kusuka karena menegaskan kembali apa yang kuyakini, yaitu pembentukan karakter dan kepribadian seseorang dapat diperoleh melalui perjalanan.

“Every generation needs a journey story; every generation needs a story about what it is to be transformed by geography, what it is to be transformed by encounters with cultures and people that are alien from yourself, and you know that age group 15 to 25, that’s the perfect generation to get on a motorcycle, to hit the road, to put on your backpack and just go out.”

José Rivera, screenwriter
Satu lagi hiburan pembelajaran yang kulakukan pada hari ini adalah menyelesaikan membaca buku, buku tentang presentasi ala Steve Jobs yang tentu saja isinya sangat bermanfaat.
