Jorge Pedro Uribe Llamas (Mexico City, 1980) is a writer and communicator.

“Cambio de Tiempo” is the name of a song by Astrud that I recommend listening to. Under this title I have gathered six urban chronicles -more inclined to literature than journalism- related to Mexico City and its quality of palimpsest: the anniversary of the city, the infraordinary from my window, the nomenclature and commercial vocation of some streets, a forgotten legend, the social pulse of the covid-19 pandemic in 2021, and the earthquake of 2017. Almost all set in the Historic Center, which is where I live, and written between 2014 and the current year. Some of these fragments are part of my next book.

“Cambio de Tiempo” es el nombre de una canción de Astrud que recomiendo escuchar. Bajo este título he reunido seis crónicas urbanas –más tendientes a la literatura que al periodismo– relacionadas con la Ciudad de México y su cualidad de palimpsesto: el aniversario de la ciudad, lo infraordinario desde mi ventana, la nomenclatura y vocación comercial de algunas calles, una leyenda olvidada, el pulso social de la pandemia de covid-19 en 2021, y el terremoto de 2017. Casi todo situado en el Centro Histórico, que es donde vivo, y escrito entre 2014 y el año en curso. Algunos de estos fragmentos forman parte de mi próximo libro.
