the weather in galicia

During my three days of hiking to Finisterre, it has been decent weather, but I have noted a pattern in the weather here. At all times, at least one corner of the sky must have heavy, black, threatening clouds. Another corner of the sky has blue sky and fluffy clouds. They duke it out. Sometimes the blue and fluffy wins, but sometimes the black and threatening win. Regardless of which prevails, the other is always present. Sunny weather still has tiny raindrops. Rainy weather still has distant sun.

Yesterday, considering the contents of my pack, I decided to throw away my suntan lotion as an offering to the Galician sunrain gods. I hope my skin sizzles.
