There were huge floods in the city. The mayor asked the city residents to stop littering (a problem here by North American standards) because the trash is clogging the storm drains and causing the street flooding.
I mentioned this before, but it is worth repeating: the windows in Argentina do not have screens. That is particularly important because the city continues to be invaded by mosquitoes--billions of mosquitoes. It was nearly 90 degrees yesterday, so the windows had to be opened in our non-airconditioned apartment. As the evening cools, the mosquitoes enter before we can shut them out.
The TV news reported this morning that the mosquito problem is going to continue, por lo menos dos semanas mas. This is not the first mosquito prediction I have heard. Last month we were told to just wait until the weekend was over and the mosquitoes would be gone. But they are worse than ever.
