El Levante

Missives New 2

Sometimes lasting a couple of days, others raging a week or more, it’s a wind like no other. Nerves shred and tempers fray. The slightest show of anger, a small domestic tiff, and the people of Santa Catalina shake their heads intoning: ‘El Levante’. It isn’t unheard of for a townsman to take an axe and bury it in his neighbour’s skull when El Levante blows. For El Levante is said to drive the most unlikely of people insane.

I want to read more. Take me to where El Levante blows

Rules on comments

As the comments sections are not intended to be general forums, comments are expected to bear some relevance to the subject of the post. Nevertheless, I do allow some generous leeway in this, particularly if I judge the comment to be of special interest.

Although I'm only too happy to link to your posts, those posts should be your own work, and not the work of others, due to copyright issues.
