I walked around the roads near my town one night. My headphones had broken so I had no choice but to listen to my surroundings. It was reaching almost midnight but the main roads were still buzzing with moving vehicles and people making their way home. It was at the point that all my senses worked all together at once. The air had a different smell to it, the leaves are starting to change into bright reds and orange and with that comes the smell of autumn. It's no longer humid at night, now the skies become cloudier in the day and misty during the night. the temperature has dropped a lot and I find myself bringing out the jumpers and sweaters. Cold weather brings perfect food for the cold days: nabe, shabu shabu, oden, amongst other things I have yet to discover.
