After 8 years of living in this country, I haven’t quite adapted to the weather conditions and seasonal changes in comparison to Africa. My usual stance is just to assume that it is going to rain every day, and that way I am seldom disappointed. The reprieve from the wet weather usually comes in the drier months of autumn but be warned, if you blink you will miss it. One day the trees are lush and green, then the next week they turn golden and the week after that… BAM - they are totally bare and it’s freezing cold! Just like that winter begins. So when autumn comes around these parts, we grasp it with both hands and hang on to it for as long as possible!
