We are having crazy weather here - extremely hot, interspersed with violent storms, complete with torrential rain, hailstones the size of eggs and magnificent lightning displays. A lot of places flooded and were really damaged. The weather will be staying with us over the next days....It is the hottest May since temperatures were recorded. My apartment also feels like a hot-house, most of the places here do not have air-conditioning.

There was an artisan market going on as we were there:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
