Life on the equator is pretty constant. It’s like the line from “Good Morning Vietnam.” What’s the weather like? Hot, damn hot, real hot. What’s it going to be like tonight? Hot and wet. Nice if you’re with a lady, but ain’t no good in the jungle.

Suriname is the same. It rains there every day. EVERY SINGLE DAY. There was talk of a dry season. Yup, rained then too.
