In all the years that I have been in Libya (21), the first of September has always been really hot and really muggy. But this year was different. It was nice all day, nice enough to eat our iftar outside in the garden. After we ate, we stayed outside until late in the night. As the temperature dropped, Jenna went in the house and came back wrapped in her blanket and I got out a light wool shawl to throw over my bare shoulders. We sat under the stars and the moon and enjoyed the weather. It really felt as though autumn was in the air. The next morning we woke to hot weather once again.
Soon it will be Eid, I'm enjoying the last days of Ramadan. Soon we will be back to school and work.
