There’s a song called ‘Horchata’ and one of the lines is about how winter’s cold is too much to handle. Drinking Horchata in December.

Well in the part of the world where I currently reside, June is the time where it’s too cold to drink Horchata.

I sang and danced to this while drinking my Horchata, the temperature outside being no contender for the beauty of a smooth Mexican drink.

I thought about my time in Mexico.

The thought of drinking Horchata while looking at those oranges and greens of the landscape.

Or maybe while lounging in this comfortable little getaway sailboat.

I thought about the warmer temperature until the drink was empty.
