Many of the photo blogs that I’m following, for places located in the Northern Hemisphere, had their expected “summer is over” post. After two days of rain and a drop in temperature that made me take a sweater out of storage and put away my sandals, it’s time to face the reality and write my own “summer is over” post. Even though the prognosis for Bucharest is that it will get warmer in the next few days (still rainy though) with unwilling hands I’m typing down: autumn has arrived. From now on until late March we would cheer if we get a sunny day. Kids will start school at the beginning of next week and the flu will start roaming the streets of Bucharest. The summer terraces will close soon and we would spend more and more time inside. But there is hope even in gloomy weather. Christmas is approaching and that’s a time of year that many of us enjoy.
