At night (my girlfriend slept in the bed and Ulises and I slept on the floor) there was something shiny on the ceiling, a glow that came from the only window (which was crusted with dirt) and spread over the walls and ceiling like a tide of seaweed.
Por las noches (mi compañera dormía en la cama y Ulises y yo en el suelo) había algo brillante en el cielorraso. Una luminiscencia que nacía en la única ventana -sucia a más no poder- y se extendía por las paredes y el techo como una marea de algas.

In the pallid glow of the rising sun, a column of legionaries trudged out of the northern gate of the marching camp that had been hastily thrown up as soon as the main body of the legion was ferried across the river.
