It has rained every day in Campinas, Brazil since I arrived here earlier this week. Clear morning skies give way to towering cumulus clouds as the heat and humidity build, releasing their torrents by mid afternoon. Today brought a small respite from this pattern, with the day staying sunny and only scattered thunder showers moving across the landscape by early evening. This view from my hotel room shows one such shower directly over the city of Campinas.
