This road trip was like a lot of road trips

Yesterday, not wanting to spend my weekend inside, I ended up going to Viña Del Mar. With some friends. A co-worker, her girlfriend, and two guys they knew. It was a little easier than going on a bus, and Viña is always good, especially compared to another weekend in Santiago.

I did think, a couple of times, that this is just like so many other beach trips I've taken over the year. The long ride, the conversation in the car that turns irritating because we don't realize we are becoming hungry, the moving around in loose groups next to the ocean, the search for food, the music, the sand, the lassitude...well, its both charming and alarming, how much our lives can just repeat in the same patterns, even in very different contexts.
