Hurricane Dean

Well, Hurricane Dean hit the Yucatan, went across the gulf, and has now hit central Mexico, passing within 95 miles of Mexico City. Thus it has been raining here all day, though there have been no high winds. It feels strange – during the summer here it rains every afternoon. But it started to rain at four in the morning, and hasn’t stopped since. I went to the National Library anyway, which is down on the enormous campus of the main public university of Mexico, the UNAM, which has almost 300,000 students. Next to the library is an ecological reserve, with a number of beautiful sculptures, sadly not enhanced by graffiti.
