On the eve of the 50th death anniversary of Ernesto 'Che' Guevara, his friend Carlos Ferrer, or Calica, in an interview with EFE recalled their journey together through South America and how it changed his life and molded the character of the iconic Argentinian revolutionary. In , when Calica was 24 - one year younger than Che - both of them traveled through Bolivia, Peru and Ecuador, surviving on very little money. The two had met, when Carlos, now 88, was barely three years old, in Alta Gracia, a small village in the mountains in Cordoba province, where the Guevara family had moved to facilitate asthma treatment for their child by Calica's father, a renowned doctor. In the conservative environment of the village, the two families - who shared similar progressive worldviews and sympathy for the republicans in the Spanish Civil War - forged a quick friendship.
