Feels like fall
It’s strange to be back in Europe after six weeks in Asia. No more heat and humidity, like in Thailand. Instead, it’s autumn in Germany.
The days are sunny and the skies are blue. It’s dark by six p.m. and the evenings are turning cool. The last remaining leaves on the trees have turned red or yellow.
When you walk through a forest or park, there’s a smell of fallen leaves and moist earth in the air.
It’s all very beautiful and somehow sad. Winter is around the corner. The dark season. The trees will be bare, the sky will be gray, the days will get even shorter.
