Winter has sprung out of the ever-extended summer with no warning (except the date). Last week I could sunbathe, but this week, with a grey sky and continual drizzle the fact that it’s dark at 5.30pm suddenly makes sense. After 7 or 8 months of sun even drizzle seems dramatic and different.
A friend came back from his travels around china yesterday and showed me his photos from the western provinces. Though I’ll only be visiting a couple of the places he did, looking through these pictures still made me excited about getting back on the road again. I keep having to remind myself how soon it is until my contract is up – only three months now and counting. But first there’s a short, mild winter to get through.
