Kiko totally gets it. His entire youth he slept in a hammock together with his younger brother, until leaving home to travel at the age of 16. His mom, 72, only sleeps in hammocks. I recall how upset she was on our previous visit when the hotel we brought her to in the mountains of Venezuela didn’t have hammocks. She suffered an awful night sleep on the “nice” bed. I can just imagine my mom’s reaction if we took her to a hotel with only hammocks to sleep on.
The hammock is the perfect image to illustrate the change in travel style we are experiencing here in Venezuela, where everything has slowed down.
