2009. Like most people, I can't believe it. Change seems to come faster and faster, one year blurring into the next.
Up here in Xieng Khouang, there's always change in the wind. We say that there are three seasons during the day - the mornings are often misty or drizzly, the afternoons warm up and the nights are freezing. There's often a strong wind during the cold season that makes the clouds race over the landscape.
I took this picture while I was walking this afternoon. I had to walk fast because it was so cold but decided to climb a nearby hill. The sight of the clouds and hills glowing in the sunset was exciting.
