It has been a bone dry two weeks here in Monteverde. Two weeks may not seem like a long time without rain, until you consider that this is the rainforest. The leaves are drying up and falling, the air is hot and dry, and just walking along the dirt roads with a few passing cars is enough to make your boogers come out dusty. Until today. It’s now raining HARD and we’re out on the porch enjoying the show with grapes, cheese, and crackers. Our tin roof makes it all the more exciting. All around us the world seems to be coming alive again, rejuvenated and quenched. This may be a crucial turning point and mark the beginning of the official rainy season, which usually starts around mid-April. Our dry days may be numbered.
