Impressions from Brasilia

The driest time of the year, relative humidity about 20%, like in a desert, there has been no rain for months. But soon spring will begin with rain and thunderstorms, the grass will be green again, cicadas will “sing” (like an electric saw:-). In fact, total rainfall over a year is far greater than in most places in UK.

many flowers do not wait for rains


owls here live in burrows; in Brazil they symbolise motherly protective love (idiom “…like an owl”)
