Viento Sur

November SkiesIn October and November, it’s very typical here to get strong winds coming from the south blowing warm African air over the Iberian peninsula. The Spaniards call it viento sur (south wind), and there is a mythology similar to that of full moons where the wind from the south makes odd people just a little more crazy. I have a love/hate relationship with viento sur.

From My Office Chair

When I’m taking a walk on a sunny day, I often have that “Wow, that’s beautiful! I should take a photo!” feeling. It almost never happens when I’m sitting here in my office chair. But it happened twice yesterday.
