It is officially winter here in Cape Town. The winter solstice in the Southern hemisphere, and our shortest day, is June 21st.
The sun will start returning now. Though to be honest, I can’t say it has been very far away!
To all of you in the Northern hemisphere, the nights will start drawing in!
post script: Our milkman said this to my Mother once, “Now the nights start drawing in!” on the day of the summer solstice. It really annoyed her. It was only just summer after all!
