Doesn't this scene of the alamandra (almond) trees look like autumn? We have only two seasons here, summer and winter (aka wet and dry). Being a native of S.W. Florida, I am used to the heat that comes with the summertime. Believe me when I say, I had no idea how hot hot could be. Here, it is so hot and dry right now that the leaves dry out on the trees and fall to the ground. It is SO HOT, the ground dries out and cracks, leaving the soil like rock. It's SOOOO HOT that you can stand still and break out in a sweat.
Even your eyelids sweat. It's HOT!
Now, we are on the verge of the mini-summer (a little rain) coming and the humidity is NOTHING like I experienced growing up in Florida. I really never paid much attention to barometric pressure before living here. You can feel the rain coming. It's been threatening for days but no relief yet. Every year I can't wait for the rains to stop but the truth be told, now, I can't wait for the rains to come again. It's really hot now where I live. It's not the same all over Costa Rica. The mountain areas are much cooler and the Guanacaste area is much dryer, if that's possible.
Rain?? "Bring it on."
