Autumn in Maastricht


It’s no secret that I chose my accommodation here in Maastricht to be within walking distance of the university. And it’s no secret that being who I am, I absolutely hate walking, even though things have slightly changed in the six weeks or so that I’ve been here.

Walking back home at about 6:30 PM last Friday, I couldn’t help but pull out my phone and take pictures of the surrounding setting. You see, unlike Beirut where Autumn is just one long extension of an already too-hot summer, in Maastricht, you get to experience all the classical signs of that season: like leaves falling and changing colors and a lot of wind- which can be comforting if you’re not too paranoid about getting sick.
