Back in the tropics.
Moving away from this place.
Yet,
comforting.
this stifling, hot, thick air.

@matt What tropics? I'm less than 10 degrees from the equator, in the jungle, and haven't seen anything that looks like a chair-lift (like in your photo). I know what you mean about morning light and smell, though.

@meg I guess technically it's the sub-tropics -- Florida. Coming from the north it feels tropical enough, but probably doesn't compare to where you are :)

@matt Right. Lived in N Palm Beach, a while. It's nothing like the jungle... It's hotter!

@meg Lol! I believe it. To me, the jungle sounds like "more shade"
