22. 5. Rooftop picnic, guey

Human contact!

🇸🇮 Kakšen teden po tem, ko sva se vselila v stanovanje, sva gor na bazenu spoznala Cynthio in Christiana. Ampak v času stroge karantene smo se vsi v bloku držali bolj zase, zato nismo imeli priložnosti se bolj podružit. Do nekaj dni nazaj, ko sta naju povabila na piknik na strehi (še vedno smo v karanteni, ampak vsi imamo že počasi dovolj). Niti slučajno se ne zmrdujeva nad vsemi spletnimi druženji s prijatelji in družino v preteklih tednih (ker so naju resnično ohranjali pri zdravi pameti) ampak druženje v živo po tolkem času je res, res pasalo. Neštete debate o hrani, Mehiki, potovanjih. Vsi delajo v turizmu, vsi na čakanju, brez informacij, kaj bo ostalo od njihovih služb. Rolando in Eric sta že bila v Sloveniji (vsi bi z guštom spili kakšno Laško, v Mehiki smo še vedno bolj kot ne brez piva), Cynthia in Christian pa sta jeseni nameravala prepotovat Evropo. Virus na stran, super piknik in še enkrat se je izkazalo, da so Mehičani večinoma res prijazni, gostoljubni in zabavni.

Mexican style BBQ

🇬🇧 We’ve met Cynthia and Christian on the rooftop soon after we moved into the apartment, but everyone in the building kept to themselves in the past months so we didn’t have much chance to interact. Then the other day they invited us to join them and some friends on a picnic on the roof, and oh uau, not to diss all the online conversations with friends and family that kept us sane in the past weeks, but it felt incredible to hang out with people in real life, have a drink, laugh, talk about food and traveling and life. They all work in tourism here, living in uncertainty of what will be left of it in the new reality. Rolando and Eric have both been to Slovenia, loved Ljubljana and Laško beer. Cynthia and Christian were planning to travel in Europe for a few months this autumn, but will have to adapt their plans. The damn virus stopped us all in our tracks, but we are grateful to have met them, once again proving how fun and kind Mexican people are.
