Rain, Rain go Away Come Back another Day

left on the line for 2 days in the rain - really clean now 🙂

Grubby clouds snagged the surrounding mountain peaks, and hung pensively over the village of Tafi del Valle for two days.  Irritable rain drizzled contempt on our washing, preventing it from drying.

We stayed in this little mountain village with a population of about 4000 people for 3 nights.  On the day of our arrival the heat and sun was magnificent.  Proof of this was Barry’s face, which looked tight and red, after 2 hours walking in the blazing sun, looking for accommodation after we turned down the Heidi cottage (story in previous post)…a lesson we will continue to think about for a long time to come.

The following 2 days it rained right through, which left us feeling a little miserable and cold.  Since our arrival in Argentina, I think the average temperature has been around 30 degrees.  Tafi has it’s own microclimate because of the surrounding mountains and forests.  We were told it rains on average once a day, but since it had now rained 2 days in a row, we decided to move on to Salta.  As it would happen, the morning we left it was as clear as a bell.  Doesn’t it always work out that way?
