November came. If you’ve been following me more than a year, you might remember the horrible days in November last year. Yes, it just rained all the time. We had to wait until January to see the sun again. Even if it was exceptionally bad last year, it is still quite normal to see bad weather in November, as it was the case today. Dodgy, it was so perfect until the weekend came.
It was partly because of the weather, probably also partly because today is the beginning of the carnival (which is a huge thing in this region) that among the 50 people that signed up, less than 20 people turned up. This itself is not really a problem. It felt more like a defeat though, when we had to buy two train tickets. This matters somehow a lot, even though each of us paid only 5€.
In strong contrast to what the weather forecast was saying, the weather was actually not so bad when we arrived at Remcheid. Thin clouds with sporadic sunlight. Actually almost like a perfect weather for a hike.
Now it’s winter. The soil was fairly slippery on the way. Jan fell down once (and quite badly apparently). It’s gonna be probably like this until end of winter. I still remember how happy I was when spring came at the beginning of this year. I wonder if it’s gonna be also such an ugly winter this year again.
