A friend from Cuernavaca, Mexico, had once written to me :
Cuernavaca is a pretty nice city but the main thing is the mountains and the perfect year-round weather. There is only about a 10 degree fluctuation in temperature over the course of the year. It is always cool during the night and pleasant during the day. The low tends to be between 60-70 degrees and the highest 75-85. There are probably not that many places in the world where the climate is so perfect, so I am happy to be living in one of them these last 5 years. There is a dry season and a wet season as well. We are coming to the end of the wet season right now so everything is very, very green. There are always flowers in bloom, butterflys and birdsong and hummingbirds to watch and listen to. From what I hear of Calcutta, it is very hot and there is great poverty. Please tell me about your life there.
