Autumn is, without a doubt, my favorite season. I love the crisp air, the smell of the leaves as they start to decompose on the ground, and the deep sense of nostalgia that it brings every year. During my time in Malaysia, it was Autumn that I missed deeply. The seasons in Malaysia followed the monsoons – wet and wetter. They grew comfortable but never sparked the feelings that I have during the Autumn. Kyoto is stunning during this time of year. I am grateful to get the opportunity to be here.
