  Late in the afternoon, Nate stopped at a small store a few blocks from the hotel. He walked in to find a beer, maybe two. He was alone on the far side of the world. It was Christmas and he had no one to share it with. A wave of loneliness fell upon him and Nate began to slide.

  He saw the bottles of alcohol, all full and unopened. His mouth was dry. He grabbed the counter and thought about Sergio back at the hospital and Josh and the ex-wives and the ones he'd hurt so many times when he crashed. Nate pointed at the vodka. Two bottles.

  He walked back to the hotel. It would be dark in an hour, and Corumbá was gently coming to life. The sidewalk café and bars were opening, a few cars moved about. Nate went to his room, where he locked the door and filled a tall plastic cup with ice. He placed the bottles side by side, and opened one. He slowly poured the vodka over the ice, and promised himself that he wouldn't stop until both were empty.

时近傍晚,尼特在据旅馆几条街区的小商店旁驻足,他走进去买了一瓶啤酒,好吧也许是两瓶。他现在孤身一人游离在世界之外,明明是圣诞节却没有人一起来庆祝。孤独席卷而来,尼特开始旧病复发了。

他眼中只有一瓶瓶的酒,没开封装得满满当当的酒。他口干舌燥,扒住柜台回想着瑟吉欧,想着回到医院的悲催日子,想祝什想前妻们以及所有因为他自甘堕落而一次次受伤的人。最后,尼特指着伏特加,两瓶。

他走回旅馆,再过一个小时天就完全黑了。科伦巴开始温柔地苏醒过来。道路两旁的咖啡店和酒吧开始营业,街上开始有汽车穿行而过。尼特回到自己的房间,锁上门,把冰块扔进一个高高的塑料杯,再把酒瓶一字排开,然后打开其中一瓶。他慢慢地把伏特加倒进杯子,看着那透明的液体没过冰块,发誓要一口气喝光才肯罢休。
