This is what I am wearing this evening. Seriously! I just took the picture. If I had balls, they'd be freezing off just about now.
People, it's freaking cold. I can not explain how it's this cold here in Rio de Janeiro! It's technically only 19 degrees C (67 F). Logically, that is not cold. That's brisk or pleasant, not cold.
But here that is bone shattering. You know why? Because we go through such a long period of time not even remembering we have bones, we are distracted by the fact that our skin is melting off.
So when the weather creeps down to a normal level, and our bones twitch, we freak the hell out. I am so freaking the hell out.
And you are not going to believe this...
I'm even wearing socks! The flip flops were put away this afternoon and I'm actually going to wear socks and my converse.
Here's the crap part to adapting to a new place, their winter becomes yours! I never would have thought...
