As I walked down the streets of Medoza with Dan I asked him what the time was.
If Japan is the far far future, when are we now?
The air is dry and hot but the streets are lined with green trees. Shops close between 1 and 5 or so and then stay open till 9 or 10. No one eats dinner before 10 or 11pm. Breakfast is open at the hostel from 7 till 10 or 10:30 or whenever the people can be bothered to put it away.
Dan says he's not sure what time it is. It's like the present, we agree, but better in many ways. Nevada could have been this but instead it's towns like Reno. What the fuck Nevada? Mendoza has old buildings, streets lined with trees, and parks where people sit in the shade all day just making out as if the world wasn't watching.
