April 15, 2007 Sunday Afternoon

April 15, 2007 at 2:33 pm

It is actually hot here this afternoon. I was commiserating with a fellow from Canada who has lived here for seven years. April and May are the hottest months and then it cools off during the rainy season of May through December. That is what they consider winter down here. Does not make sense but who am I to tell. He said that he grew up in Ontario and then moved to Alberta and then Vancouver. He hopes he never sees snow again. He laughed and said that it did snow in northern Guatemala a few years ago and it was front page news. He called it a skiff. He is now into gardening down here and says that during the rainy season you can cut something off a plant and throw it on the ground and the next day it will have taken root. I don't doubt it. I know that when it rains here the plants take on a new life and turn very green and there are always new flowers the next day. So far the movies today are Repo Man and Pulp Fiction. I have seen them both. Havana Blues is playing at the hotel where I get free wireless so I might try that. They have some films that are more artsy than others. g
