The women I met in Loreto

Over the days I've met many fantastic chicas; around town, strolling the Malecon, in the art shops (a real hot spot), in restaurants, and, even in a touristy souvenir shop.

I’ve been told that I should focus on people sometimes in these Loreto updates on Stark Insider. Foodie shots, landscapes and casas are well and good, but what about the personal story?

Oddly, most are not keen to strike up conversation. Some even appear oddly disfigured, like a Picasa met a lawnmower perhaps. It was a welcome break not to have any of them remind me — as much as I deserve the scorn — to learn Spanish (it’s the #1 priority).

But just like the town of Loreto itself, the memory is ever-lasting. The soul is stirred. Tread lightly, you might say.
