I’m not from here. I didn’t grow up somewhere near the ocean, so … overjoy and euphoria always accompany me whenever I go there. Meeting up in the mornings to go to the movies, and we don’t know what to do afterwards, but we just go to the beach. We have no sunscreen with us, but people around us do. Some people have their swimmers with them others don’t. We jump in the ocean and dive through the waves. That’s just a day in my life. It happens often.


Ocean is the strongest smell; sunscreen (invisible zinc), salt. Jacaranda is very strong too, but not as strong as the ocean (behind you). Perfumes of my friends are all around.
