Uruguayans and rain

1 February 2004

It’s interesting to see how differently people here react to rain than those in England. Here everything stops when it rains, people stay in their houses and there’s no-one on the streets. A lot of the smaller shops close because of rain as well. So after talking to Gilberto, Youth Group was cancelled yesterday, because there wouldn’t have been anyone there. If everything stopped when it rains in England, the country would come to a standstill!!
