Hi Elena, I am living in Madrid now and in Johannesburg for 14 years before that. High deserts both of them, though Madrid in only slightly high (enough so it cools down at night). I lived for many years in Maine, on an offshore island. we had fog for days on end. One July I never saw the sun and that was after a foggy, windy, nor’easter June. I also wish for a rainy day, and love the softer weather in spring when it is green and fresh and I walk under the pattering rain on my umbrella.
