We are in the middle of our rainy season, which extends from Mid-April to Mid-December. However, this will be an odd year. Pundits are announcing that El Niño is expected this year. This means we will receive much less precipitation than last year. It is most likely that our countryside will be severely hit and power outages are not out of the equation if El Niño is as hot and dry as anticipated. We are apprehensive as to what will happen during the upcoming months.
Meanwhile we are enjoying almost daily cloud bursts providing a blanket of fresh green grass and gorgeous tropical flowers. Below are several pictures of a garden at the entrance of a Pizza Hut Restaurant in the neighborhood of El Dorado. Ain’t that nice?
All shots were taken with a compact P&S Canon PowerShot A720 IS—handheld—at midday with a tortuous bright sun. The camera’s setting was semiautomatic Program Mode.
