Midwesterners who move to the coast of California quickly notice how the slightest weather change elicits a big reaction from the natives, and soon, we too develop an intolerance for big variations in the weather. In San Francisco, 80 degrees in really hot and 50 is really cold. The weather in Quito is even milder. It's about the same as in San Francisco, temperature-wise, but without summer or winter and without the chilly wind. Yesterday was partly sunny and 68. My Spanish tutor came in saying it was quite hot. Today, it was partly cloudy and 68. She came in complaining that it was awfully cold. Oh what a perfect climate will do to you!
