What’s outside the window?

“Back in the Impala, back to the desert. I’ve been happy in this town. Before we left, Lupe said we could come back to Villaviciosa whenever we wanted. Why? I said. Because the people accept us. They’re killers, just like us. We aren’t killers, I say. The people here aren’t either, it’s just a manner of speaking, says Lupe. Someday the police will catch Belano and Lima, but they’ll never find us. Oh, Lupe, how I love you, but how wrong you are.”

–-Roberto Bolaño, The Savage Detectives
