Autumn Bliss

It's Friday... It's October... and it's 7PM. The normally quiet neighbourhood streets are filled with the delightful noise of happy children still playing outside even after darkness falls. They're outside- in Tshirts - playing football under the glow of the streetlights. In the distance the western sky is a radiant orange and pink. The temperature is slowly falling from the 25C it was late in the afternoon and there are no threatening rain clouds to be seen. Mount Dajti is clear and if you look carefully there are stars twinkling in the deep blue sky.
Is there anything more wonderful than an early Autumn day in Tirana?

It does sound nice there, but here it means cold and rain.

The weather in Yerevan is similar, sunny and in the mid-20s. I so love this time of year!
