I had never been here before, but my brother, who was once a model and had traveled all over the world, recommended that we visit this place. "Janna, the city is beautiful, hip. You will love it." He had seen the world, so if he said this place was wonderful, it would be amazing. We would be staying with an old friend of mine from high school, Ryan and his wife, Barbie.
We had not seen these dear friends of ours for 15 years, but it seemed not a moment had passed between us. So much had changed, and yet nothing had changed. A few grey hairs here and there, not on my head, of course. And a few creases alongside the eyes, hiding the youth that once was.
