This past week I could feel the summer returning. It is getting warmer by the day, and somehow the air feels less dry than in the previous weeks. Slowly, the ants are waking up, the cattle is back in the middle of the city and a couple of days ago there were a few dark clouds on the horizon, promising rain. Some nights ago we were woken up by a brief thunderstorm and Björn got all excited and jumped out of bed to see the lightning and the rain. I stayed under my blankets, listening to the soft rustle of raindrops on the dry ground and quietly wishing that not only the wait for rain will be over soon. It’s already been a long dry season and I’m glad winter is almost over now.
