What kind of title is that? you may ask
Well, let me tell you. As I said in my “about” page, I am from South America and everything is different there. Now that I live in the midwest I can feel a little more like home than the PNW. DON’T get me wrong, I loooove the PNW but rain there is more like drizzle. It’s a lot of fun and you don’t really get wet but here in the midwest it rains buckets. It’s AWESOME! I love it. Even though I get wet and it’s uncomfortable, I still love it.
Storms here in the midwest remind me of the power of nature. When there is a tornado or just the thunder and lightning I feel small and insignificant. That is cool! It reminds me that I am definitely not the center of the universe and there is much that is outside my control.
Now, back to “Nature over there”. What is meant with that is that nature in South America is a little different than here. The climate is sub-tropical which means that there is an abundance of humidity and storms and rain. Now, when it rains there you want to hide, get on high ground, find a boat, etc. You get the picture.
The thing I love about all this is that although it’s not fun for most of us to endure the harsh weather, nature seems to love it! Trees are huge and very green, grass grows like it’s on steroids, and overall everything is just very green.
I am hoping to be able to go down there soon to see old friends and enjoy the beautiful clean nature and AMAZING natural food again. I just saw a couple pictures of people eating fruit picked from their trees in the backyard and the fruit is HUGE!
There is nothing better than fruit picked from a tree. YOu know where it grew up, where you got it from and you know if it has any chemicals in it or not. Most people can’t say that about their food. I guess I just really miss good fruit and vegetables.
I had to write this post to give you a tiny insight into the nature of South America because I love it and miss it a lot. See you in the next post. If you like to read the other posts simply click me. OR if you wanna write me do so.
