No Socks in the Wash

We crossed the Tropic of Cancer on our last leg, and shortly after realizing that we were now officially in the tropics, we discovered that there was nary a single sock in the laundry. Coincidence? I think not.

We’ve been worried all along how we’ll deal with the climate in the tropics, as neither of us loves the heat. So far it’s actually been quite reasonable – highs in the high 20s, with reasonable humidity and cool nights. I’m hopeful that because we’re on the slow route, we’re acclimatizing better. It is actually been quite pleasant so far.

We’re heading into the Sea of Cortez (Golfo de California, for those looking on maps) for the foreseeable future, which will take us north of the Tropics again. But our brief stay in the low latitudes has been good so far, and will hopefully continue in that vein. And anything that keeps the size of the laundry loads down is good with me!
