Elisabeth and John, U.S.

John: “There are many things here that someone from Europe or from other parts of the world maybe wouldn’t appreciate as much as we do. One day, for example, after a particularly demanding stage, we arrived at the hostel —a country house, really— and we discovered that it was a 17th-century building. That, in our country, in the U.S. would have made it one of the oldest houses still standing. Or another time, another hard day, in which we were walking with some Irish pilgrims, and it started to rain heavily and, while we were soaking to the bone, they were happy,…, just… happy. So happy, in fact, that they started to sing ‘Hallelujah’.
This is not like a walk around your house. This…, I don’t know, this helps you connect with something, I think.”
Elisabeth: “With the universe, I’ll even dare to say. This helps you connect with the universe.”
John: “And that’s something that cannot be more important right now.”
Elisabeth “Yup, especially if we consider who our new president is.”

John: “Hay cosas que quizás un Europeo no aprecie o, por lo menos, no tanto como nosotros. Un día, por ejemplo, después de una jornada bastante dura llegamos al albergue -una casa de campo, en realidad- y descubrimos que era una construcción del siglo 17, Eso, en nuestro país, en Estados Unidos, la convertiría en una de las más antiguas en pie. O en otra ocasión, otro día duro, estábamos caminando con unos peregrinos Irlandeses y se puso a llover, y mientras nos estábamos calando hasta los huesos ellos estaban…felices. Tan felices, de hecho, que se pusieron a cantar ‘Halleluyah’. Esto no es como un paseo alrededor de tu casa. Esto…, no sé, te ayuda a conectar con algo.”
Elisabeth: “Con el universo me atrevería a decir. Te conecta con el universo.”
John: “En cualquier caso es algo que me parece muy importante en estos momentos.”
Elisabeth: “Sip, sobre todo si tenemos en cuenta quién es nuestro nuevo presidente.”
