I traveled often to Aguadulce when I was working for a sugar mill owned by the Chiari family. During the zafra, I stayed in Aguadulce between one month or more depending on the problems that emerged during the harvest season. Usually the zafras were very smooth with minor occasional wrinkles. Nothing so serious as to worry about the outcome of the summer agricultural activities of the sugar mill.
I remember vividly viewing an old house on the top of the hill which looked dark, mysterious, and spooky. It was called “la casa embrujada” (haunted house) by the locals of Cerro Campana. For years the house remained empty and threatening, as if taken out of one of Edgar Allan Poe’s poems. Several years later, I left my job at the sugar mill and the ghost house disappeared from my radar screen.
The ghost came back during my last trip to Coronado in late December. Only this time the original house had been demolished and replaced by a more modern design and structure. The regal stone walls were still there, and the mysterious atmosphere still hovered over the real estate. It was nice to see the old premises again after an interruption of over twenty-seven years.
I wonder if the ghost has moved to the renovated house and spook people during Halloween nights or evenings with full moon and howling wolves. I don’t believe in ghosts, but I have an open mind and believe than under the sun, anything is possible. Do you believe in ghosts?
