I just spoke to a Gaucho from near the border with Uruguay.  The temperatures are colder there than here in the Serra Gaucha, but he said that here in the Serra the cold is felt more.  Is it the humidity?  It's common to walk into the kitchen or a bathroom and find the ceramic tile floors and walls WET.  It's condensation.  Where I lived in California the temperatures were lower than here, but the perceived cold...what I felt...was not as bad as here.  RS has all the ingredients for snow, it just doesn't have snow.  It's like a pretty girl with a beautiful dress, new dancing shoes, her hair in curls, and...nobody to take her to the party.

 

In the USA I lived in two deserts, and I'm not overly fond of the heat.  Being "brancão", I burn very easily in the sun and I always wear a hat.  Hot Northeast or cold South?  Which? 

 

You're damned if you do and damned if you don't.
