Friday night we came out of El Tequila after a good dinner (I recommend the Pollo en Salsa Verde) and stopped dead at the sight of the immense, towering thunderclouds in the eastern sky, which were brightly lit by the setting sun. When we first saw them they were brilliant, brilliant white with highlights of golden pink, but by the time we zipped the dozen blocks home and I pulled out my camera at the eastern end of Woodley Street, much of the brilliant white had already faded but the pinks and purple shadows were still vivid. Rarely, if ever, have I seen such spectacular clouds.
