Is it global warming that makes the temperature so unpredictable these days? Or is my memory of March pasts failing me? My bags are packed for my flight to Oaxaca tomorrow, but I may need to reconsider! Temperatures will range from 89-93 degrees Fahrenheit according to the Weather Underground. That’s HOT.
Pull out the lightweight cotton and linen. Put away the fleece. Grab the sleeveless dress. Ditch the Patagonia black long-sleeve T. Reconsider the heavy handwoven cochineal dyed poncho. Add a lightweight sweater instead. Pack the straw hat or better yet, buy one there. What about those wool socks? They will wick-away the sweat, yes, but my feet will be really HOT. Sandals sound really appealing.
This high desert, altitude 6,000 feet, confuses me. At night the temperatures will drop like a stone to about 46 degrees F. Then, there will be a chill in the air and what will I want to wrap around me? That wool poncho, perhaps?
