It's nearly winter in my hemisphere, but I decided to have a positive outlook on meteorological gloom. 1. It's cold in my house. Bonus: when the fridge is full, I can keep the yogurts equally well preserved on the kitchen table. 2. I can finally wear my pretty boots. 3. The sweaty smell in Santiago's metro and buses isn't that bad anymore. 4. It's also cold in bars and restaurants.
Bonus: I waste no time taking my coat off, then putting it back on!

5. I eat pumpkin soup and drink creamy hot chocolate.

6. I wear my favourite leopard tights.

7. Hence, I spend less pesos on leg waxing.

8. The ski resorts await me a mere 2 hours from the capital.

9. When it rains or freezes, street sellers mushroom, providing me with umbrellas and warm clothing. It's handy.

10. Winter doesn't last for ever.
