Sunsets and Big Steaming Volcanos

Chapter Fifteen.

Sunsets and Big Steaming Volcanos.

Walked inside the Papindo store this morning. The floor is lined with polished bathroom tiles which are kept clean with heavy amounts of a strong ammonia based detergent, and they obviously use too much concentrate because it perpetually feels like there is a film on top of the tiles.

This makes walking around feel like you should really be on roller skates, and be gliding across the floor.

Add to this that life next door to a big steaming volcano means that if it not raining outside then everything is dusty and whenever any customers walk in, they bring a little bit of the volcano with them, leaving behind a fine layer of talc like dust.

Because I was early into the store, all of the staff were hustling along with their dust brooms making little piles looking like volcanos on the floor. Many calls of sorry and excuse me and the occasional boina malarna were going down.

Work finished too late for me to take my camera for a swim, but I was in time for the sunset.

to be continued...
so very beautiful! :)

What a wonderful place to watch the sunset after work. Beautiful panorama shot. I can imagine the dust accumulations on everything. I lived in Guadalajara, Mexico for a few months back in college days and I remember the feeling of living under a coat of dust.

What can I say that hasn't already been said! It's gorgeous. I understand life with constant dust although I deal with it on a much much smaller scale with my wood stove in the winter.
April 12th, 2013  
@olivetreeann - you'd be surprised as to how many of the locals here have wood stoves.
