We live approximately 3 degrees south of the equator. (The most southern part of Florida is 24 degrees north of the equator.)
And no, our toilets do not flush backwards. Let’s just put that rumor to rest.
So, living close to the equator means this:
1. We are closer to the sun and therefore sunburn happens much quicker.
2. The sun rises and sets at approximately the same time everyday, year round.
3. The temperature and humidity levels stay the about the same, year round. (it’s usually in the mid-80’s and around 75% humidity)
4. We only have two seasons: rainy and dry (or less rainy, as I like to call it).
I forget that the seasons are changing in the US right now and I forget that the days get shorter.
We watch American television and think, “Why is it so dark out? [on the show] It’s only 6:00 pm!” or “They are driving on the wrong side of the road!” …but that’s a differently matter entirely.
So, soak up a little extra Fall for me, would ya? Because I miss it!
