Autumn Like

This morning I woke up to an autumn like weather: not downpours with lighting and thunders – a usual summer rain in İstanbul (like we had last Monday), but drizzle: the fine, misty rain of autumn İstanbul.
A drastic drop in temperature: from 30ºC to 20ºC!
It was chilly… and cold wind was blowing…
It is still chilly… cold wind is still blowing…

I know many people don’t like such chilly weather, that they prefer sunny, hot summers, but personally I welcome any rain, whether rain storms with thunder and lighting or drizzle.
I would have tried to explain why rainy İstanbul is more beautiful, how the air and the earth smell during and after rain, how fresh and clean everything become after rains, how lively I become…but I’ve got to go: for a nice, long stroll to enjoy this weather and all the beauties it brings. Then I’ll lay down on sofa, wrap myself in a blanket and read a good book while listening to rain drops on the window…
See, I’ve really got to go!;)

    As soon I stepped foot in Istanbul and was greated by the cold weather, I got the biggest headache ever which is still not going away. I hate weather clashes and the effect they have on your system.
