A friend recently built a roof over one of her two decks, and when I saw the nearly-finished project thus morning I was reminded of Jamaica.
Other nooks in her vast yard speak of Bali, Hawaii, Costa Rica, Belize. And it’s no wonder: she’s well-travelled, and makes a point to pick up a bit of the culture from each destination. This morning we discussed her tentative plans to see the Amazon River.
Visiting her home is like taking a brief vacation to the tropics.
