Today was the first day of classes. So far, everything is fine… The weather is quite cold right now, with freezing temperatures at night and about ten to fifteen degrees during the day. The days are rather short, with sunrise at seven and sunset at five. We do, however, get lots of sunshine. In the first couple of days, it was quite rainy and unpleasant, but the locals told us that this was the first rainy period for over two years. Understandably, they were quite happy about it. I added the weather button to the left column.
