It’s quite an interesting experience, shopping in the feria when one minute you linger undercover after making a purchase to stay dry, and just a few minutes later the sun is blinding bright. But it’s al worth it when you get to see a double rainbow (arco iris in Spanish), if only for a few short moments.

Hot sun, relatively cool breeze, and welcome episodes of shade thanks to the puffy clouds. Beach jammed, but dogs found nothing to chase in the bush (they missed a couple of little lizards that we spotted). Sometimes uneventful walks are just fine.  

I do love the sky here in Uruguay. Rarely polluted with aerial spraying so common in North America and Europe. Those are our avocado trees — looking for a bounteous harvest this year, Hod willin.’
