I just came back home from the Schanze having watched the first half of the footballgame Spain vs. Italy, and I got inspired by the beautiful sky. It´s 10:30 pm right now and it´s just after sunset. The sky was pink and bright blue... really beautiful. Just on the edge of turning dark blue. Unfortunately I didn´t have my mobile with me to capture the scenery, so I took a picture from the balvony of my flat. Not a bright shot, but it gets the message across I guess. It doesn´t feel like nighttime at all, it´s more like early evening. I love this time of the day, just on the edge of night. You can still sit outside - if it´s warm enough - and have a few drinks with friends or take a walk through the neighbourhood. Also, when you come home at like 4 am from a great party and you can hear the birds already warming up in the trees. Nature awakes and you are soo sleepy from a night out dancing and having fun! From dusk to dawn. At that time of the day, you feel like everything is possible. You are capable of anything. :-)
Today was really hot and humid, so when in the afternoon the thunderstrom with heavy rain broke loose it was like a relief. It wasn´t though the air smelled of rain. I love that. There is nothing like the smell of summer rain. It´s almost on the same level as freshly mowed grass, always sets free childhood memories. Excpet that this time you weren´t the one mowing the grass! :-)
Oh, now Spain and Italy are in overtime..... need to get back to the game. I am not THAT multitasking, I must say.
