In our Windows on the World series, we ask Canadians living abroad to give us a sense of how it feels to be where they are right now. It’s a way to cross borders without leaving home.
Still blissed out post massage, my girlfriend and I make our way into the water. Around us, couples lounge poolside, sipping on cocktails. My own piña colada in hand, I sit back and admire the way the light filters through the hibiscus draped around the pool’s edge.
No, I’m not reminiscing about a vacation in the pre–pandemic past. And no, I haven’t discovered a time machine.
This was all just last week.
