Pipes and kettledrums herald the arrival of gypsies on their annual visit to Macondo, the newly founded village where JosÃ© Arcadio BuendÃa and his strong-willed wife, Ãšrsula, have started their new life. As the mysterious MelquÃades excites Aureliano BuendÃa’s father with new inventions and tales of adventure, neither can know the significance of the indecipherable manuscript that the old gypsy passes into their hands.
