I have been receiving complaints for not having posted anything lately. It is just that not just my body, but also my brains seem to have been paralysed. Paralysed from the constant heat. The weather has been “exceptionally stable” (read : hot) for the last few months, and it’s even becoming boring. For the first time ever I am happy I have AC, which I gladly put on. Still, I am praying for a good thunderstorm to cool things off a bit. But nothing so far. I guess I will have to fly up north to winter, to find some real relief…

Now I know why all the Argentines leave the city in January. The streets are empty, you can cross the streets even when the lights are red as there is no traffic anyway. Many restaurants are empty. Apartments are locked up. And when you want to organize something with your friends, you must wait. Until when? February? Probably better until March, when life will slowly get back to normal, and when temperatures get bearable again.

Now, one should be by the pool or on the beach… Will put that on my to do list for next year.

  1. You can head to the South…Ushuaia it’s at delicious 9°C now.
    Not every summer is that stable. In other conditions a severe storm would come shortly, and the Pampero wind would blow

    • yess!! good idea 🙂
      I can’t remember it ever being so hot for so long, but then I have never been here a whole month of january. Usually I love hot weather and I absolutely hate the AC!
      Will definitely keep this in mind when we book next years holidays.

    • Here nothing so far. Not a drop. Not in weeks. The grass in the parks has turned yellow, some trees think it’s autumn and are starting to lose their leaves. A LOT if rain is needed here…

  2. This is a historci drought. Usually it’s hot in January, but the “normal” thing is that big, refreshing summer storm comes in no time, so you only can have 2 or 3 days of intense hot weather, after the storm the refreshing and cleaning Pampero wind appears.
    But La Niña is killing us, 2 years in a row. That’s too much
