Elena Blasco was 25 years old when life prompted her to make a difficult decision. Together with her husband and her first daughter, they decided to cross the puddle for work issues. Before reaching the place where he is today, he toured several countries and learned a lot of things. The first few years, I walked them wanting to return, until I got to adapt completely.
Today, he is 68 years old and lives in the city of Cologne (Köln), in Germany, 30 years ago. The Sanjuanina left the province in the hope of a better future. However, from the beginning the family group's intention was to return to San Juan, after being accommodated financially. But things happened...
Various circumstances led her to settle completely in Europe . Elena is a graduate of the Sarmiento Normal School in San Juan. After completing his secondary education he met a man of Austrian origin and married him. Together, they projected a future and decided to have a family. Her husband, despite his European origins, lived in Argentina and studied in San Juan, where they met.
In the region of Cuyo they had their young daughter eager to grow up and hungry to succeed. However, that could only happen if they left the province of Semites, the sun and the wine behind , so they emigrated to Venezuela, looking for a economic stability and professional growth. That happened in 1978.
The marriage traveled to Ciudad Guayana when her first daughter was two years old and Elena was pregnant with her second baby. The husband worked in the multinational group Techint and was transferred to the Venezuelan town. This was the beginning of a life of globetrotters, as the family would not spend more than two or three years in the same place. Then from Venezuela, it would go to Puerto Esperanza, in Misiones; Veracruz, Mexico ; Buenos Aires; Linz, Austria until finally arriving in Cologne. In the middle, they were at intervals in Valencia, Spain, and other destinations, always on labor issues.
Elena Blasco said that her adaptation in Germany was not easy because she had to learn the required and hurry language, as did her daughters: “She cried every day because a kindergarten baby could express and I didn't.”
However, episodes of impotence and pain would make it stronger and eventually remain in memory . The decision that led them to stay, despite sadness and nostalgia, was the great crisis of 87. “ When I arrived in Europe I knew I was coming back. He always traveled to countries knowing that he was going to meet, but in Germany it was all different,” said Sanjuanina.
The woman said that now, after so long traveled, she loves Cologne because it is a “half-Latin city.” In addition, he meets two sanjuaninas who live there too . The town where he resides has a good industry , especially automotive. He also said that there is a large industry with regard to culture and entertainment , and that is why there are important international fairs .
What was most highlighted by Blasco was the Cologne carnival, which is well known throughout the country. Elena says that in Germany they call settlers “lazy” because they really like to celebrate. However, they all add up when it is carnival time. In addition, the Sanjuanina revealed her opinion on German culture. He said the country is not as straight as it seems from the outside. And he thinks that this may be because of globalization, which caused the culture and customs in general to change.
