Vallejo Nocturno 2014- towards the light
After the conference, we sat in the lobby drinking drinks from the well-stocked bar, discussing trips we had taken on planes that flew for hours past nights and days into surprising cultures. He told us about the time when he worked at the large database company and he had been able to obtain a hard fought upgrade to 1st class, excited but at the same time disapointed that he would only be able to savour 5 hours of a foreign luxury, as the trip was quick for our relative standards. Later I left them to their doings and walked out the front of the hotel, across the street to the buildings and the warmth of no air conditioning. Looking to my right I followed the sidewalk past strange palm trees crowded by an empty bus stop and towards these buildings that appeared to house apartments and perhaps small food shops. As I approched the base of the building the sun, crouching, had made its way through the vegetation and was finally peering at me.
