Last night, we stayed in an albergue perched on a river with an invisible city drowned beneath it. It was a lovely place. We made some dinner and tried to decide where to eat it. There were some benches in front of the albergue overlooking the water and the bridges and the green and the rising moon and the fading sun. But inside there was a television and clean floors and tables. I went outside and looked around. It was a little chilly. And we hadn´t seen a television or clean surfaces in so long that it just seemed like the natural choice.

That´s probably the best way I can explain how beautiful everything is. It´s so beautiful all of the time that it´s easy to shrug off.
