I had an unfortunate accident friday afternoon, dropping very fast onto a slab of concrete near our home, breaking my right forearm in three places and dramatically changing my inmediate future life and plans. With three weeks of our season to go, Puri and Jorge will show how dispensible I was whilst I am on my little holiday in hospital.
