Summer Holiday

Everyone’s tired of the wet weather in Ireland, right? The noise of rain against the windows tends to distract me from my computer games. It also makes window washing necessarily more frequent. You won’t have failed to find the solution, surely (given the clue in the title)? A holiday to somewhere dry. Where?

The tropics are out, too humid. Nowhere on the coast. Maybe the Atacama desert? Driest place on the Earth, isn’t it? Aparently not. While my discovery of the Dry Valleys isn’t as important as Robert Scott’s, it is news to me. Go read about them. Then read it again. No rain in two million years. I’d better bring some Coke.
