The universe is smiling on us.
It’s my final day in El Sauce before I take off for Peru and Bolivia, and I think EVERY friend of mine from Las Minitas from the cofee and tourism cooperatives is in town.
Even the ones I never see.
Alcides and Nicholas, and then Emiliano and Juan … I saw Freddy, who was not at his house yesterday when I dropped in, when I bought water.
And as I opened my door, there was Paiyo, in a mototaxi, waving past.
We hugged and I said, “I have such good luck today. It is my final day and I can say goodbye to all you. See you soon. I will return.”
We are waiting, they said. 🙂
