This weekend Brasil went off daylight savings. Every year it is a different day, even a different month – it seems given to the whim of the ruling government. I am sure that there is some logic to it but I’ve yet to see the pattern. Maybe I should do a spreadsheet of the dates over the past 10 years, then a graph and analyze the results…..
No Matter, I actually like the change. Now Houston is only 3 hours behind us and when they go ON daylight savings, there will only be two hours. And I was able to walk at my usual afternoon time and yesterday I caught the sunset. Last week I left the apartment at 5:50, walking at a good clip and I was up at the pile of stones on the east end of Ipanema with about 30 minutes to sun down. Last night, leaving at the same time, I had to keep looking over my shoulder to see what was happening with the sun as I made the walk. Too much glare through the humidity, that’s what!
By the time I had reached the end of the beach I was beginning to feel that I would be rewarded for my efforts.
