Noemi was sitting at a tiny flight of steps round a corner in Barri Gòtic, playing a ukelele and singing. It was her last day working and staying at the heart of the city, and she would be returning to her hometown about 30-40km away the next day. Her ideal life would be to be a volunteer, singing and writing poetry while helping those in need.

Her voice was keening and sweet, and made me think of lovebirds that sweep the horizon as I stare out the window, or the feeling of leaving a place you can’t bear to leave to another place you can’t bear to be apart from.
