Paradise

She was all alone, facing the vastness. She gazed and squinted, but the immensity was greater than what her eyes could capture. The harder she tried, the harder it was to draw the borderlines. She closed her eyes and gave in to the quiet rush. The crisp cool water was dancing shyly around her ankles. The billowy breeze kept on brushing against her bare skin and hair. She could taste the saltiness clinging to her lips. When she opened her eyes, the sky was a dome of gold, and the beach was the crystal reflection of it. The gold melted into blood orange, and then into pink. It was surreal. It was breathtaking. It was Paradise, she thought.

Lo que más me gusta de la playa en El Salvador es su inmensidad. La costa es tan grande que no importa cuánto mires y contemples, es imposible atisbar sus límites. Es, aparentemente, una realidad sin fin. La grandeza y belleza del mar son palpables de tal forma que te absorbe, con el pacífico rumor de sus olas, con el frío roce del agua, con la húmeda briza que se pega al pelo y al cuerpo y con el sabor salado que se aferra a los labios. Y cuando al fin piensas que no puede ser más increíble, llega la puesta del sol. El cielo se vuelve dorado para luego fundirse a naranja mezclado con tintes de rojo, morado y rosa. Es paradisíaco.
