So over the last two weeks our high temperatures have gone from 95 down to 56 and back up to 95 again! (Keep in mind we don’t have heating or A/C) These rapid swings in temperature have come with the biggest wind storms we’ve seen since being in Bolivia. Last week, after the first blast of cold air came blowing up from Argentina, Laura and I were walking through the courtyard of the convent when we noticed something awful.
All the baby mangos that had been growing on the mango trees (due to ripen in October) had blown off! Oh the humanity!!!
I think that means there aren’t going to be many mangos around this year
We also had lots of trash that blew in to our field and piled up behind the Institute building and piles of sand that blew in from places too.
So next time you’re walking through your grocery store and looking at all the fruit, stop for a moment to pay your respects to all their fallen comrades that were lost along the way.
