Back in the cold

Am now in Porto Alegre which is a serious shock to the system, having arrived last night.

Yesterday afternoon I stepped out of the brilliant sunlight of Fortaleza where the temperature was touching 30 degrees. Nine hours later I walked off the plane (after two stops in Salvador and Sao Paulo) into (relatively) arctic conditions of 7 degrees. Everyone is dressed in sweaters and coats - I think I may have to go out and buy some myself.


As if that wasn´t enough I can barely feel my fingers as I type this.

Thus begins Projeto Dois Invernos (Operation Two Winters), in marked contrast to Julia´s much more sensible Two Summers Project in London.
