On Sunday, we woke up to the sun streaming through the blinds. Just like the Sunday before, it was a beautifully bright Autumnal morning. I pulled up the blinds and saw the brightest blue sky, Autumn coloured leaves and the mountains were on full show, just look at them.I lingered a little longer in the world’s most comfortable rocking chair with the doors wide open and felt the sun on my back, I basked in it like a tired cat.
Just six months ago I wrote about Autumn in London, and now six months later, I’m here to share tales of Autumn in Santiago. I left England at the end of Autumn, meaning I skipped to Spring in Chile then got to have a reaaaaally long Chilean Summer… Now, back to Autumn again and a big cheer for having missed winter for a year and a half!Anyway, Autumn in Santiago has brought with it a fair amount of rain and of course Those Floods. Which means, on a sunny Autumn day, you have to make the most of being outdoors. I walked around my local area finding every colour of Autumn against the bright blue backdrop. It was definitely too warm for a coat, and it felt like I had the streets to myself as Sundays are always peaceful. As I wandered, I still felt confused by the fact that it’s Autumn in May and that Christmas is very far away despite the fact that it feels like it’s just around the corner as the weather cools down and winter fruits appear in the markets. But, rather than worry about which month it was and why I was still thinking I was in the Northern Hemisphere timings, I took in all of the colours around me and snapped away, looking up at every tree and admiring how many colours surrounded me. Is Autumn not just the most colouring bursting season? Or maybe, you could say the same about every season.
Which season are you basking in?
