For many of our collaborators and readers alike, October is typically a month where jackets are being pulled out of the closet and images of 4:30pm sunsets are coming to mind. Despite the fact that I’ve lived in South America for over 2 years now, decades of habit still conjure up those same impressions. However, this does not change the fact that I love warm weather (maybe a byproduct of living in Chicago for over 15 years) and that spring draws people from their winter caves and a new energy emerges within the populace.
The temperature here right now (about 20 degrees Celsius) is the equivalent of what I experienced in southern Chilean Patagonia at the height of summer…I’m glad that its only going to get warmer. So whether you are saying hello or goodbye to warm weather, I hope these images will help with the transition.
