My father was thirty-four years old when he married my mother in 1904 (she was ten years younger than he) in Montevideo's pretty cathedral. Two years later I was born, their only child, named Logan Gonzago after my respective grandfathers (neither of whom was alive to meet his grandson). I stir the memory soup in my head, hoping gobbets1 of Uruguay will float to the surface. I can see the frigorifico -- a vast white factory with its stone jetty and towering chimney stack. I can hear 5 the lowing of a thousand cattle waiting to be slaughtered, butchered, cleaned and frozen. But I didn't like the frigorifico and its chill aura of mass-produced death -- it made me frightened -- I preferred our house and its dense and leafy grounds, a big villa on the chic [...] Avenida de Brasil in Montevideo's new town. I remember a lemon tree in our garden and lobes of lemon-coloured light on a stone terrace. And there was a lead fountain set in a brick wall, with water spouting from a putto2's 10 mouth. A putto who looked, I now remember, just like the daughter of Jacob Pauser, the manager of the Foley estancia, 30,000 acres of the Banda Oriental, the purple-flowered flatlands where the beef herds roamed.
