Brrrrr, it's cold

When I first arrived in Uruguay it was late summer and so hot I didn't believe it when people said it would get cold here. I thought they were speaking in relative terms, as in brrrr, it's cold for me, but it won't be cold for you. Well I was wrong. The weather finally started to act like autumn, and I had to dig out my coat today.

There were thunderstorms earlier this week that are responsible for the cooler temperatures.

This is lightning from my window. You don't even want to know how many attempts it took for me to get this photograph. Luckily (unfortunately?) the storm lasted all night. There were plenty of opportunities.

Also, side note, someboday was BLASTING their television at 4:30 AM this morning. What is with that? One, who is up that early? Two, who turns on the TV that early? Three, who puts the volume at on full blast when staying in a hotel? Didn't they think the rest of world might be trying to sleep?


  1. why are you in a hotel? I thought you were in your apartment now?
    You should have gone and beat their door down.
    It's that cold? Goodness...I thought I would bring my bathingsuit...

  2. The apartment is on the top floor of a hotel.
    I considered stomping on the floor. If I had a broom, there might have been pounding. Haha
    Cold. yeah. But don't let that deter you from coming! The hot springs are hot all year... and you'll be sick of summer by then.

  3. First off, you are a person who would be up around 4:30 in the morning. You are my night owl, stay up till early morning hours, sleep in till early afternoon hours.

    I can relate to the thunderstorm. There was a nasty one that pasted through Normal, IL the other night. It woke me up. I can totally related to storms! But at least my storms are bring May flowers!
