The night temperatures are about 12 degrees, but it feels colder. The humidity is low too, and the wetness from the rains just past is gone and it is dusty everywhere. In the morning there is a haze and the colors of the flowers in the trees are not sharp, though beautiful. Today morning the sky was overcast. On the way to work, in the vegetable bazaar-street near St. John’s Hospital, dust reigned and the green of the vegetables didn’t show. The haze cleared by noon and the winter sun was sharp on the skin; but the breeze was cool in our compound at the factory and the feeling was pleasant overall.
