PORT-AU-PRINCE — We start when the sun goes down and the pavement beneath our feet loses its heat.
“Anu machay!” I announce. Let’s walk!
I didn’t used to declare this. It started quietly, as a way to get exercise during the pandemic lockdown. A simple walk around our third-of-an-acre lot. To be honest, it was little more than walking in a large circle.
But no act, big or small, goes unnoticed by our kids. And after two or three laps (each of which take no more than a minute and a half) one of the younger boys skipped alongside me.
