Could anyone call this el niño and tell him to go away for the next 4 months ?? or if you have his phone number, it would be really kind of you to give it to me…
So, to explain a bit : I arrived on Saturday, and since then it is really cold… like 3 layers on at day time, scarfs, hood or warm hat, under 3 blankets at night with windows closed…
I went on Monday to the tourist information center and got informations about hikes to do around Santiago, that I can go with a bus and not too expensive. The guy gave me some tips and maps, and also add at the end that I should not plan it if the weather stays like that… he checked the weather forecast and said anyway better not this week and he add that it is “el niño” at the moment so it means a cold and rainy summer.
Of course, I asked him when that el niño was supposed to go away, and he stared at me for a second, like I came from another planet, and answered that it is one year long… usually it is la niña, but this year it is el niño (roughly every 5 years)… if you want, more informations here.
So here we are, I am in Chile this year, with a cold and rainy summer coming ! After my amazing summer with not more than 18 degrees in Finland, I have the coldest spring in Chile 🙂
Actually today is not too bad, I went a bit walking around after the spanish class…
A few informations about how to contact me :
My postal address is :
So, if the post in South America works good enough, I am waiting for letters, or postcards… 🙂
My french mobile number does not work. It worked in Miami, and after that I could not manage to get a network here in Chile, so, since friday evening, if you tried to reach me it was impossible 😦 and it is still impossible.
