8th April 2015 – Dresden, Germany
Winter still ruled. With a cold hand and A touch of unrelenting, unforgiving steel. Spring is near, everyone tells me nowadays. But that is not exactly how I feel.
I woke up in the morning, and went to take a walk in the Neustadt area of Dresden. The only problem: its still winter!
Well, it has been a really long winter for me already. Starting from the cold reaches of Nepal and Bhutan, I found a little respite in the beaches of Sri Lanka and Maldives. Then, came the snowy days in Istanbul, and the winter is still with me.
So, I have been waiting to see spring badly for a while now. After all, walking in the cold is one of the most depressing things to do. And everyone tells me that Spring is coming soon. Tomorrow. In 4 more days. In a week. I highly doubt all of that.
I walked to the Martin Luther Kirche in Dresden, and looked at the leaves which were not yet green, and the flowers which were not yet blooming.
Yeah, Spring is close, but not close enough.
