Three weeks in Lamy in 2010 were enough to knock off my feet for several months. That’s how long it took, to get 'back on the ground again, once we were back in Amsterdam. And even after four years, there still was this yearning to go back to Lamy, so we (my wife and I) decided to act upon that and returned to Lamy to see if this truly is the magical spot on the Northern hemisphere I hold it for. We drove from Chicago to Lamy. Seeing the sign ‘Welcome to New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment’ made my heart jump with joy. The arrival at Lamy was remarkable. It was quiet. As quiet as Lamy can be during 23 hours a day. But when we entered the guesthouse it was like we left it only the other day. It was like the house welcomed us, and not only the house, we had a heartwarming reunion with the extended Zunkel family and friends. It truly felt like coming ‘home’ again. We spend two weeks in Lamy. What can I say? The house is wonderful in every aspect. We enjoyed every minute there, especially when we build a fire (temperatures dropped suddenly) and had long nights of reading at the fireplace; Lamy is the charming sublime nothingness itself; The Romanelli-Zunkel family and Silvie demonstrated great hostmanship and made us feel like being part of the family. Often, going back to a place that made an impression, is a bit disappointing. Following our hearts and revisiting Lamy turned out to be the best thing we could have done. After this second ‘Lamy experience’ we can truly say that Lamy is a unique and magical spot on this earth. So is the house. So are the people.
