Following is something I wrote in response to a prompt from Kat Myrman. Just to note, there are places in the US that do not use house numbers and addresses in formats with which we are more familiar. Carmel, California, which describes itself as a village, is one. Friends have assured me that there are many similar “villages” in the Northeastern US.

The Hoffnungslos sisters had remained in my home village. I called the younger sister, one who promised to wait so we could make a future together. Breathlessly, she gave me directions to her home. “As before, we don’t use house numbers, just look for my name on the gate.”
