Seasons, abbreviated.

In the last 3-4 weeks the word season has stopped meaning things that occur at regular times of the year. For ten days in Perth it was the beginning of winter. As a matter of fact, I landed on the day they officially declared the beginning of winter. For the next ten days in KL it was the end of the rainy season. Though the rain never really showed any signs of letting up :|. And now the two days back in Kolkata have been the last few days of summer! A chap can seriously muddle up his seasons this way :(.But now the thunderclouds are gaining ground here as well. And rains are the way they should be, thunderous bursts that wash the dusty city clean and leave a fresh coolness in the air. Yes, it's good to be back :). Especially now that my kid cousin brother from Asheville's here, it's all a little extra good!

And in the 'Cup, now that all the group stage matches are over and all survivours declared, tonight it all starts in earnest: win and you are in, lose and you are out! What a way to start off the second stage with Germany playing Sweden and Argentina playing Mexico tonight. I definitely didn't see Australia or Ghana going through, and I didn't want France to get through, but it's football, and anything can happen! ;)

Current Mood: happy
