Winter is here…

Maybe that’s why I felt so wistful about Barcelona earlier this week. It might be the approaching winter. Yesterday I felt my face burn from the cold for the first time this season – a feeling we never really had in Barcelona – and this morning we woke up to barely 1 C. Soon we will be below zero… Can’t wait for the snow!

Here’s one of my Fall pictures:

Finally!! Fall is here…

After a really warm end of september and beginning of october (this weekend was 30 C!!!), Fall is finally in the air… I confess this makes me very happy because I don’t really like having hot weather during the academic year. Most of my nicer teaching clothes are warm ones and I hate carrying all my heavy books around in hot weather. Besides, I LOVE the Fall; the colours, the brisk coolness in the air, the crispness of the light, everything is nice about it. All the high humidity, 25-30 degrees weather we’ve had in the past few weeks were definitely not Fall-like to me.

But after a Thanksgiving at 30 degrees Celsius,  we finally got normal temperatures:

I don’t like the rain but I’ll take that over the muggy, hot weather we had this weekend…
