Tonight, there is an almost tropical quality to the air. I just got back from an evening stroll along the lake, sweating in my sleeveless shirt although the sun was setting. The path was crowded with people; jogging, walking, talking, laughing. Others relaxed in sidewalk cafes, having drinks or ice cream. Someone passed me on a unicycle. A cockatoo sat on a fence, gazing out over the darkening sky.
A dreamlike evening on the other side of the world.
