It’s been raining a lot this week. That’s good, we need it so much as we’ve had almost no rain for a year. The day before yesterday it snowed a couple of inches and then melted a few hours later when the sun shone through. The village rapidly transformed in to a series of small waterfalls as the water poured down the mountain and through the streets. As I trudged up the steep path from the plaza to my house this evening it looked as if someone had spilled paint all over the road, turqouise and flamingo pink, until I realized that the puddles were reflecting the evening sky and its colours perfectly!
