Muy cerca pero Muy lejos

“Ethnographers negociate and write their identities during the research process.”  (Amanda Coffey) 

Muy cerca pero muy lejos (in engl. Very close but very far)

My identity of being a grandchild of a Shil-hyang-min , it naturally appealed to me a lot to be interested in my mythical homeland, which is 50km above from Seoul.  I’ve been starting to work with a phrase: Muy cerca pero muy lejos
