Sara S-P tagged me to write a poem (I feel so honored)!

I am sunburned
from walking Inca trails
Full, from eating Andean potatoes.
I am in my mother country,
my mother´s mother´s country,
my mother´s mother´s mother´s country.
I am at the end of the line.

I see the rails curve around the mountain,
Empty train tracks veering out of sight.

Tiny Quechua children
watch me watching them.
Dark eyes under hat brims,
over sunburned cheeks.
