twice the size of me

I have dreams (and friends) twice the size of me. 

I fell in love with the air, the trees, the thinly paved and often cracked roads, the tanned locals and their warm voices, the cool sea water and hot white sands. I fell in love with the way the sun shines brighter, the air is fresher, the fruit is sweeter, the men are bolder and the drugs are cheaper. I breathed in their culture and tried to hold it in my lungs. Marijuana, Pineapple, Cheetos.
