fall colors

It's really fall. (Or, as my students' textbooks all say, autumn.) The last couple of days have been cold and typically rainy, but today is the kind of bright, crisp fall day that I look forward to all year. I'm sitting outside one of the cafes by my building right now, and it's a little chilly without a coat, but I want to spend as much time as I can outside right now. I know the Galician rain will resume before too much longer.

People keep assuring me that the leaves in Galicia turn colors, like the ones in Virginia, but I haven't seen too many yet. It's okay. That makes the ones I do encounter even more exciting.


  1. Good to see Gwen enjoying her time abroad!

    1. She loves it! Lugo has as many trails as Front Royal :)
