Right now my mind is caught up in minutiae....like why am I wearing a brand new pair of boots instead of ones that are already broken in? And will my luggage arrive with me? (I doubt it)....And my seat on the plane...last trip I was next to someone with horrible breath for 7 hrs...and then there's the fight for the armrest....am I going to be squeezed for 8 hours?...then there's the person who wants to talk too much....only more absurd is the person who doesn't talk at all, not even one word, even though you're sitting less than 1 inch away...
And of course it all works out...the luggage even arrives!! It's maybe the last bag off the chute and I'm ready to give up, but it's there.... I got an excellent seat on the plane- nobody next to me...my ride was waiting, friendly, and gave me a 4 AM tour of Lima, in Spanish, on the way to the hostel. Lilli, the woman running the hostel is great...she tells me to just lie down and rest...everything is perfect....I can smell the ocean...Lima makes total sense....the only unknown still haunting the corners of my consciousness in these early morning hours....why the new shoes? Only time and some mileage will tell...
