MARCELA IN MEMPHIS’ COMMERCIAL APPEAL — ONE LANGUAGE: GLOBAL COUPLE KEEP HOME BASE IN MEMPHIS, FOCUS ON SHARED VALUES (2011)

Matt Farr, 28, a Memphis native, took his Colombian wife, Marcela Pinilla, 29, on her first-ever canoe trip along the Eleven Point River in Missouri shortly after the couple moved to Memphis in 2009. The first day was great.

The second day: “It was a little colder than I expected for April — 35 degrees — and foggy. Within the first hour on the river, a gust of wind blew us into a strainer in the middle of the river,” explains Farr. The couple hit the downed tree head-on, turned sideways and capsized, the current pulling them both underwater.

By the time they got back to shore, they were exhausted and soaking wet. As Farr started a fire, Pinilla turned to him and said, “Thank you. I have never felt so alive.”
