BLURB

I just had to run away, I didn’t really care where to. I spun my globe and happened to slap my finger on Shanghai. But…wait a second. What is the weather like over there? I checked the degree of latitude to find that it’s the same as Morocco. That must mean eternal Summer. I took a flight in the winter, I saw the icy rivers of Siberia, flew over the snowcaps of Tibet in my swimming shorts. We landed in the middle of a snowstorm. I was in shock, although I thought I was simply frozen. “Don’t worry, the summer is coming”, they said. March came and I washed my clothes and hung them in the garden. Then it started raining. It rained for days. Then it stopped, but I was already naked at that point. I was praying for a little sunshine. But it started again. It was finally over in June, but as soon as I stepped out of my room I had the feeling my shirt had not yet been dry after all. But this time the water was coming out of my skin. It was 40 degrees Celsius. Call me stupid, I’d still stay, even if I had to swim to the Bund. [Andras Gal]
