More pleasant running through the New England region, at the best time of the year here. It’s clear why the season is called Fall in the US. At times there is a constant stream of leaves falling to the ground. We have far less trees that shed their leaves in Australia, which I guess is why it’s not referred to as Fall there.
A huge thank you to the Downie family – David, Laura, William, and Lindsey – for their amazing hospitality last night, and their generous donation to Oxfam. They’re truly great people.
