Winter's Coming

While all you people at home enjoy your warm spring approaching, we in Kimberley are seeing the first signs of autumn. It’s still pretty hot most of the time but the nights are getting cooler and rainy days are chilly. I’ve been excited for South Africa’s winter since arriving. People keep telling me that it’s going to be really cold and I brush it off saying, “I’m from Wisconsin, it’s fine”. I think I’m wrong though. I just got done hand washing my clothes in the back and my fingers are numb. I’m sitting in front of the TV, wearing my Wisconsin sweatpants and sweatshirt and holding a cup of tea. It’s not even winter yet…

The trees are changing colors in my yard!
