In Chivarreto Antonia and her friend Mary have prepared the Temazcal, a traditional sauna which dates back to the ancient Aztecs. The two girls undress and slip naked into the small cave, where the heat from the stones and the smoke from the burning wood overpowers them. They are lying on their backs. Breathing, sweating and giggling. Whispering about all the things girls in their early twenties talk about. The paper that Mary has delayed for too long. Boys. The party tomorrow. Gossip from the village.
«Clitoris!» Mary howls, and the two friends giggle.
Today, Antonia is 25 years old. She will soon have finished law school and she has a boyfriend. They have been together for over a year, but will not marry yet. They sleep over at each others houses, despite the fact that their families are not very happy about it. Both make sure to protect themselves, so that Antonia does not end up pregnant again. If she were to get pregnant, she does not think she will have another abortion. But she prefers to decide for herself when it is time to have a child. The choice is Antonia´s alone.
