Antigua

Journal notes:
Antigua is yellow and rainbow. A grid of cobble streets. Cars in lines. Everything is flat. Green and pink flowers stream over stone walls. Walking directly up to doorways to see what’s inside, because there are no signs.

It’s raining lightly. Where are all the cars going? We aren’t here nearly long enough to let ourselves be fully taken over by it all.
