And here I am.. in Lima, no more mosquitoes, no more sleepless night because of heat..
Lima is beautiful, it reminds me of Torino for some reason.. I really like it.
I have been here for 5 days now, I am in a great hostel, 1900 Backpackers, I made new friends… I have been happy.. but tonight, as a lightning, I realized I was not going back to my Bahia….
I weeped (like seriously weeped) alone… I was ready to leave Bahia because of all of the drama that I unfortunately got into the last weeks .. but now that I am far away I am realizing how much I will miss it.
I will miss going to see the sunset every day and attempt to have yoga sessions while the tide is rising just to eventually jump in the water..
I will miss having Avriel waking me up at stupid hours in the morning to go to the gym (I know, I am actually saying this..and I actually did it..)
I will miss going to eat encebollado with a big headache with Tessa and Avriel just because we have to get up and feel better..
I will miss dancing like there is no tomorrow with the whole group, until the sun rises.
I will miss sitting on the wall (el muro) drinking and dancing under the rain.
I will miss even Henry’s training sessions that left me without air for at least 1 hour after they were done…but were always followed by the best margaritas or beers.
I will miss all the amazing people that always kept me in a good mood even when things were going a bit wrong…
All the smiles, the nature, the love, the understanding and the intense research for a better future.
Bahia de Caraquez is lucky to have so many amazing people caring for it.
The energy that I felt there was impressive, for some reason there are heroes that stop there and try their best to fix this beautiful town, and when I say Heroes I am not exaggerating.. I was living with Heroes.
I wish all the best to them, and I thank them for letting me be part of it for a little.
I will never forget what I learned in these 5 months.
They changed me, from deep inside, all, the good and bad, but especially the good.
I love you Bahia. I will be back.
