While the winter here is not as harsh as other countries, it is long, way too long for a tropical woman like me, no matter how long I’ve been away from home. It just weathers me down. Don’t let me get started on the endless rainy days especially during the summer … That is why when the sun is out, I become like a mad-starved woman who can’t believe her luck that the sun-shiny days are here and lasting! When the sun is out, the world opens up and embraces you. As if anything is possible and you could go anywhere and the horizon doesn’t seem unreachable after all.
Now excuse me while I go out again and make my brown skin even more browner than it already is. I promise I’ll reply to emails soon!
