I'm in Alberta, in the smoke.

And feeling ignorant. Yesterday I was at home on the East Coast reading about the California fires, not knowing about the wildfires in BC that are sending smoke over the western part of Canada. We landed in Edmonton and wondered at the smog and haze. Now in Camrose, the day looks like dusk, and the air is acrid with smoke. If it's this bad so far away, I can only imagine how bad it is closer to the fires. A terrible emergency.

Does anyone watch telenovelas?

I started with the original El Clon (which I've watched in its entirety twice), then its remake. I've binge-watched many on Netflix, like Lo Que la Vida me Robo, Teresa, Velvet, etc. I try to avoid the drugs-and-crime ones but they dominate the genre.

I don't watch because they're great literature brought to the screen, I watch for the wide variety of conversational Spanish. I just finished watching Lady, La Vendedora de Rosas (based on a real person) and I was very glad for sub-titles because the slang and dialects were hard to follow.
