A friend and I took the bus up to Cerro San Cristobal this evening to see the city lit up at night. And for 5S, the traveller recommendations are right: it is quite a deal and quite a sight. It amazes me how this city stretches on forever, how neighbourhoods wind around the sporadic mountains peppered through the landscape. I couldn’t believe how insignificant I felt.
I also couldn’t believe how long we sat in traffic, car exhaust, and sound pollution on the way up to the summit. I like this city, but unfortunately, it’s done my head in, being here and dealing with these daily routine stressors. Ahh. Just a little homesick tonight, I must admit.
But don’t worry: I’m taking in as much as I can, enjoying many fresh papaya and chirimoya smoothies, and basking in this comfortable warmth, because damn it, I sure ain’t gonna take the awesome parts for granted while I’m still here.
Would you like to be relaxed all the time? Even if there is noise, you can feel peace, listen REGGAE!
