aunt vicky

hilary's aunt vicky lives here.
lives here. in guatamala.
i havn't been yet, but i've begged hil to promise that one day....

this is what she says:

"my aunt's house is literally in the middle of the guatemalan jungle and you have to walk twenty minutes down a tiny winding sandpath to get to it, or else across the lake by boat to a tiny dock [...] you can climb up to the roof and watch the stars spin. they feel so close to you, like a roof with tiny holes punched out. the birds at dusk are deafening with their tropical calls. the shower is in the open air with sanded cement and thick adobe tiles under foot. the nights are cold and so each room has a fireplace. the days are thick and hot." -hilary 2010
