...and, headline news: Córdoba Sees First Rains of the Year!
10.10.2005 15 °C
Extra, Extra read all about it! The city of Córdoba has relinquished its swealtering hold on weary and homesick foreigners, and officially fallen into, well, Fall. I woke up this morning to the first real rains in Córdoba. A.K.A. the air is clear, i wasnt sweating when I got to school, I am actually wearing shoes, not flip-flops (*tear*), AND the place smells nice for once. But the real reason Im writing is because I had a near ´Sex and the City´ experience this morning (or as they call it here ´Sexo en Nueva York´). I was walking to la parada (bus stop) in en la marea (drizzle), when this extremely thoughtful driver, sped through the large puddle that gathers at the bus stop. Me in my little winter outfit and new (although not $400 Manolo Blahnik) shoes, was splashed by the tidal wave of Córdoba´s street/sidewalk run off and rain. Lucky for me, I, unlike miss SJP, got out of the way and only the hem of my pants (well, up to about my calf) would indicate that I had been in the rain. Ahhh Córdoba, the city of a thousand and one experiences!
