There were eight of us…

Abstract: There were eight of us on the way back and through the endless turns of the green mountains of Switzerland in a car the size of us and our luggage. No less and no more. On the way back in the green mountains enclosed between two skies. We drove in silence as if we were carrying the weight of the memories of the past 14 days with us. Something had changed in our silences, our words, and our looks. There was no longer any trace of the intense contraction of muscles that appeared in each of us at the beginning of this journey. And I thought that, rightly at the end of every journey, there is an opening and a sadness.
