It’s here, and I couldn't be happier! Fall (or Autumn, if you will). At least, I think it’s here… you never know here in Taiwan, the past week might have just been a fluke. Don’t get me wrong, I love Summer. But Summer in Taiwan is not quite the tanned skin-cocktails on the beach-beautiful warm nights-scenario that is usually associated with the Sunny Season. Because of the humidity here, it’s more of a can barely breathe-clothes sticking to body-frizzy hair-walking from one air conditioner to the next-fiasco.
I like Fall for many reasons. I love when the trees start changing color, and the refreshing, cool breeze in the mornings while I wait at the bus stop. I like that I don't have to have the air conditioner blasting away 24/7, and that I can snuggle up under my little IKEA blanket while watching TV, with a nice cup of tea.
It's also getting colder, which means that it’s time for my butler to get out my Fall/Winter wardrobe from storage and get it dry-cleaned. And of course, by butler I mean me, and by Fall/Winter wardrobe I mean jeans, and by dry-cleaned I mean wash it in my 93-year old leaking washing machine.
So, happy Fall to all my Fall-loving-Northern-Hemisphere friends, and happy Spring to the ones down under.
