Wearing 5 layers of clothing, huddled under 4 blankets on my bed, I came up with things that are cold in Bolivia:
Doing laundry by hand with COLD water
Washing dishes by hand in COLD water
The toilet seat
Cooked vegetables (always served cold)
Damp clothes (i´ve been trying to dry my socks for 4 days)
My bed before I climb in
Getting in the shower
Getting out of the shower
Today and yesterday have been the coldest days yet. Lots of rain, intense hail that drops off rooftops like snow drifts, cloudy skies. I´m missing walking around barefooted on carpeted floors, heaters, and long showers.
I´m thankful for hot tea, warm hugs, hot chocolate, my ugly waterproof boots which keep my cold toes dry, and the 3 alpaca wool blankets on my bed, even though they leave fuzzes on everything I own and dust bunnies under my bed.
