This morning, I was in the Praça Santos Andrade, waiting for our photography teacher (yes, I'm doing a basic course to try to post pictures at least tolerable), taking pictures randomly. Than I saw a tree with a twisted trunk and went to photograph it. On the way there, under a 35oC sun, I wondered what could be worse than suffering with the heat that is unusually punishing Curitiba in historical records. Well, it would be worse to be under such a sun, for hours and hours, wearing a very hot uniform, just like the garbage garbage guy of the photo.
Masses of hot air from the north of Brazil, preventing the advance of cold fronts, the El-Nino phenomenon and who knows what else, made this the hottest perior in Curitiba in more than 30 years.
