‘And what about you?’  Silvia asks

‘I’m free like a bird’

She laughs. ‘The same thought was running

through my head’

I look around

at the porteños

having their merienda

whilst I just finished a burger

‘I’m definitely a city girl’ she days and continues:

‘Can you think of a

place where you could settle down?’

I try to think

and I see a porch

and mountains


‘But I know

it’s in the countryside

somewhere beautiful’
