We are in the midst of the hottest time of year for us known as La Canícula, though apparently it's nothing compared to what's going on up north near the U.S. border with Canada. Still, it's hot and humid and it's necessary to stay hydrated and to try not to overexert yourself. Thanks to the unsolicited "remodelación" we now live beside a concrete oven that is elevating the ambient temperature for us by at least 3°C. No more cool breezes from a shady garden park. Bummer. Every degree makes a difference when it's the hottest time of the year.

As of this morning the Autopista Siglo XXI was blocked around km 109 between Uruapan and Nueva Italia by people of Pueblos Unidos. Not sure if there is a detour possible, there but I believe the blockage was only temporary. We'll see what tomorrow brings. Apparently the Guardia Nacional, police and military have instructions not to touch anyone, so their presence is basically useless.

Another picture-perfect postcard day in paradise.
