A wet September night in an Andean city? That´s all fine and good if not for being well out of season! Really the Andean world is divided into two dynamic times of year. Just two! Only two! Wet & Dry! This side of the equator we, in South American, are now expressing Awti-Pacha (Dry Season/Autumn-Winter) which is followed by Jallu-Pacha (Rainy Season/Spring-Summer). Tonight it rains two months early? I sit drinking Coca Tea peering out a droplet speckled window and wonder what has become of the world. I suppose it best to allow scientists and industrialists to dither over sunspots, weather cycles and global-warming while the rest of us contemplate the impact of antiquated technologies mucking up the planet as it rains in the Andes two months before Jallu-Pacha, the aforementioned rainy season. Umbrella at the ready, I continue to look for a smaller footprint and wait for the day when we all live directly from the sun and wind. Oh, the coming of that liberating day! And wouldn't it just piss off a few two-legged fossils dreaming of new oil reserves?
