When the Rains Stop...

It is beautiful here. The mountains, the colors. Beautiful. But in the winter it rains. Gloomy dark days and I are not the best of friends. I'll take one every now and again, but a week gets to be daunting. I love the sun -

Became unforgettable this week:

I couldn't help but get out in the neighborhood and take these few last beauties before the sun set. Living up here on the mountain has its perks - the views being the biggest:

The rain has cleared the smog from the air, added a fresh coating of green to the lower parts of the Andes and a blanket of snow at the peaks. Absolutely stunning!
