Flickr Favorites Tuesday: Parasol

Flickr Favorites Tuesday: Parasol, originally uploaded by Marian Florcita.

When it starts getting hot around here, people always assume that since I am latin, I looooove the 30C. That I feel at home with a strong sun and sweating with every step you take. The truth is that in summer, it is a very warm place where I come from… but I grew up by the ocean, which means that one doesn’t have to suffer the warmth. You just go sit at the beach, swim… enjoy the ocean’s breeze. And that is what I miss right now. The chance to just go to the beach without much inconvenient. The beach is a few hours away from here so it isn’t and every day thing. Oh well…

All the credit to the photographers who took these pics. If you want to see it larger version, click on the mosaic. If you want to play, visit Mitsy’s blog.

Cuando empieza a hacer calor por aca, la gente se piensa que yo siendo latina estoy disfrutando de lo que merezco: sol, calor y transpiracion con cada movimiento. Si, hace calor en el verano de donde yo vengo… pero yo creci al lado del mar. Lo cual implica que si hace calor, sin demasiados protocolos y planes, uno va y se sienta en la playa a disfrutar de la briza maritima. No se sufre. Ahora extraรฑo la playa… me queda a varias horas de aca asi que no es como para levantarse y salir todos los dias.
Y bue, todo no se puede.

    Our river near by really can’t compete with an ocean next door… Understand, that you miss it!

    Now, If I could just combine the last flickr mosaic I saw on ice cream and yours plus find a warm day around here (they’re hiding) then I’ve GOT something!!

    I know what you mean – not being able to be at the beach in summer is always so depressing. Luckily we’re near the coast now, and it’s beautiful (although still a bit of a drive) Hope you can get to cool off soon.
