Antigua is an interesting place to live, at the very least I love living by volcanoes. I stare at them on my way out in the morning, watching the inconsistent ashy rumblings of Fuego spill across the morning sky. At night, as I am walking home, I choose a route which allows me to stare contentedly at the hazy silhouette of Agua.
After 3 years of being self contained I feel funny trying to grow roots. I constantly feel like I should be packing my bags and to move on—but I like the notion of being settled. It has its pleasant aspects—cooking for oneself, having routines, meeting people or at least making slow attempts at doing so.
All in all I still haven’t gotten my sea legs or land legs, and my job doesn't make it any easier. Most of January I spent out of Guatemala and February didn’t fare much better. Maybe I’ll never really stop and grow moss or roots but for now I like the sensation of trying.
