Happy Mid-Year Solstice 2015

Happy Solstice everyone!

Today is the longest day of the year for you Northerners above the equator, and the start of summer. In Chisinau, Moldova the sunrise was at 5:09 a.m. and the sunset at 9:03 p.m.

Here in Malawi it is the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year. It's been raining a little the past few days and getting pretty cold, at least for Malawi. (I'm sure Colii would say it is still t-shirt weather.) As there is no insulation or indoor heating, I am wearing lots of layers and drinking plenty of tea.

In Blantyre, Malawi the sunrise was at 6:06 a.m. and the sunset at 5:17 p.m. So  basically I wake up and go to sleep at dark-thirty these days  : )
