On The Cold

It creeps up without you noticing. And one day you realize. The cold is back. The surprising thing about weather in Morocco is the power of the sun. It can be only a degree or two above freezing in the shade and a pleasant summer day in the sun. As the olive harvest gets underway the thermometer sinks to 5˚C of Mercury overnight. In homes and shady spots the temperature stays there into the afternoon while the world blessed by sun warms to 22˚C by 10am.

Of course, in London its 2˚C of frost, so it is hard to complain.
