Zgorzala contrasts

Zgorzala - the first village outside of Warsaw when you leave Jeziorki heading south. Today's walk reveals the following contrast; a huge haystack (in the UK hay is neatly packaged in round polythene bales), behind it new houses springing up.

Although we're well into September, it still feels like late summer rather than early autumn. I've not yet felt that feeling of aware, the Japanese term for the first intimations of the onset of autumn. In London at this time of year, I'd scoot off up the North Circular in search of that particular atmosphere that early autumn brings. Here in Warsaw, to date I've yet to feel that climate. "It's not over!" Spring starts later, summer ends later.
