After studying anthropology for 3 years on the Universidad Nacional , he worked with El Tiempo newspaper from to as a general columnist. After leaving, he directed the "Enviado Especial" special correspondent TV show, which introduced the modern journalism in Colombia, for about 20 years. Today he is still writing. On the one hand the story of a gypsy witch, and on the other the life of a poor-well-known Colombian drug lord, Castro Caycedo uses their stories as a base to conduct the reader on a trip showing how the cocaine traffic affected the society and economy of a small town Fredonia, Antioquia , the Mexican Secret Police's brutality and corruption, and the United States' active role in the birth and expansion of drug production in Colombia. The stories of some pilots in the Colombian Orinoco region, where brave men face extreme jungle conditions, flying old DC-3 airplanes to carry people, food, medical supplies, and sometimes funny payloads, like beer or animals.
