The internet search and tech giant celebrates the legendary Colombian writer and Nobel Laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez's 91st birthday with a colourful sketch doodle depicting the magical city of Macondo featured in his most famous book 'A Hundred Years of Solitude'.

The doodle depicts the imaginary magical city from his best seller that is located deep within the dense Amazonian jungle. The city depicted in his work is separated from rest of the world by a vast expanse of water.

The jungle works as a home to the Buendia family and strange and magical things seem to be happening there as depicted in his best seller 'A Hundred Years of Solitude'.
