Lima Sky: Panza de Burro
Speaking with someone here in Lima, Peru I asked about the weather. You see, my experience of Lima has generally been in the winter months (June, July, August). During that time the sky is usually gray and the sun is rarely seen. Now it is spring and the sky is still mostly gray.
When I asked about the summer months and the presence or absence of the sun I was told, “No, el cielo panza de burro se cambia en el verano. En el verano hay sol y hace calor.” That means, ‘No, the sky that looks like the belly of a burro changes in the summer. In the summer there is sun and it is hot.”
I was so glad to hear that I will see more sun and I loved the description of the sky: panza de burro/ belly of a burro (also known as a donkey).
