Winter in Sao Paulo – clear skys and even more polution

Its now offically winter in SP, and some days its almost cold, well ok, not really its still 24 degrees during the day, but a couple of times in the last few weeks it has gone as low as 14 overnight. This ends up feeling colder than london cos there is no heating in the flat – so rather than a nice warm centrally heated 20 degrees we end up with a crisp 14 or whatever it is outside.

So with the colder weather, we are also getting more clear skys and less rain, seeing the blue of the sky can be a bit of a shock after months of SP grey, so its very nice to see, the only thing is it brings into stark effect the amount of polution in the air. I took this snap from our place on friday morning last week, and the other one at Fred and Rons farm back in New Zealand just before christmas, as you can see the NZ sky goes from blue to white, while the SP sky goes from blue to brown…..

It can’t be that bad for us though can it?
