We are already in mid September, however it still feels like summer in Cyprus. It's got 35*C (95F) inland right now and 33*C (91F) on the coast. This is no surprise. In my part of the world, September has always been..... the fourth summer month! This is why it is so hard for all primary and high school students to get up at 6:30 am and get ready for the first day at school after the summer break! Primary school here starts at 7:30 am and finishes at 1:10 pm. High school starts at 7:45 am and finishes at 1:30 pm. Soon after school, most children take up English, French or German, piano, swimming, football, computer, taekwodo or ballet lessons at private schools. Lessons at my school start a bit later - on September 17. I am looking forward to meeting my students and beginning together a new school year.
As you may realise, September is for me that time of year when- regardless of the weather - I go back to work and get ready for the new school year. However, this year, September is also the time when I'm going back to the beach and swimming in the sea. Because of some health issues (angioplasty), I wasn't able to swim at all during my summer break. I now wish the hot weather continues till the end of October!
What's September like in your part of the world?
