The silly season

January here is like August in Europe. The country heads to the coast.

The mass evacuation from São Paulo is staggered, but generally commences around the second week of December and - well, this is Brazil - isn't reversed until March.

Carnaval
conveniently falls in February which means most people take that month off too, effectively producing a three month mega-holiday which, three weeks in, is already driving me nuts because I need to get things done and nobody seems to want to do anything in this heat.

Eeeesh.
Happy New Year!
