The transition from verano (Summer/Dry season) to invierno (Winter/Wet season) is dramatic. All of a sudden everything is green, as if I had put on green-tinted lenses. Everything is humid. The temperature has dropped by a few degrees Celsius. Dry creek beds have become frothy torrents. Country roads become riskier, as certain bridges are destined to fail and other bridgeless stream-crossings will become impassable during the heavier rains.
Most of all, producers are happy. This dry season was long and hit hard.
