Back in Seattle notes

Azure and I had been touching less in South America and both of us noticed it subconsciously but didn’t say anything. When we got back to Seattle it was back to normal, lots of contact. We figured out why: It’s damn cold here. We’re drawn to each other’s body heat. In South America it was so muggy that we kept to ourselves to stay cool (and because we were covered in sweat most of the time).

The cold is also affecting my appetite: I’m eating a ton just because I’m cold and I guess my body wants me to fatten up.

On a bus in Argentina I sat next to a guy (who spoke perfect English) and told him how much I loved his country, the food, the landscape, the pace. He said something along the lines of, “Yeah, but the government is corrupt and the politics are all messed up and the economy is on a bubble…” and I realized how much more I was enjoying his country than he was just because I wasn’t paying attention to the chatter. I’ve noticed that the more I pay attention to the chatter here in the states, the less I enjoy my time here. Haven’t yet turned on the radio nor the TV since returning and Azure’s avoiding her phone.
