La canicule terminé !
¡La canícula terminó!
The heatwave is over!
Call it what you want, but canícula even though elsewhere it is used for referring to a heatwave or the dog days, in Guatemala, or even in Central America perhaps, it’s used to mean an extended break in rainy season where we have dry days with lots heat, although the heat is not a requirement, but since we are in the Summer season, the heat is expected.
It’s the longest break of the rainy season that I have memory of, but it’s finally over and the regular heavy down pours are back. I will try my best to capture the beauty of the rainy season as well. Wish me luck.
