The wind was mild, the sun, shining. Lovers holding hands.
I walked behind them, taking in all the sights. The fishermen were offloading their fish and people were buying them all, straight from the net.
I stopped to stare.
"Do you want to buy some to take home?" my brother asked.
It was tempting.
"Nahhhhh. I can't be bothered" I replied.
He walked ahead, speaking with his girlfriend. She was laughing and holding his hand.
A guy jogged past without a shirt, sweating and making some strange hand movements, spontaneously, I jogged behind him, imitating his movements. I got a few laughs from the people around.
There is still so much I haven't seen in the world, I thought. So much. Where are all those ships going?
When we got to the beach, I took off my shoes and lay down.
"You are like a lizard, soaking up the sun" my brother said, taking a drag of his cigarette.
"Ehhhn, let it be. I don't care". I replied.
"You should put your feet in, its good for the blood circulation" he said.
I did that for a while and got bored. Then I lay down again.
"You would stay here all day if you could" he said.
"I would". I replied, my eyes closed.
A woman was sun bathing in a bikini. She seemed so confident. Her man kept talking pictures of her while she struck different poses.
What confidence! I thought. She was overweight.
"We should go now" my brother said.
I got up reluctantly. So much to see in the world, so much to do.
