    This is my favorite line, you really captured Fall: Living in the northern hemisphere for 37 years is not something that goes away quickly though: the rhythms of the seasons get into your blood and prime your cells for certain changes. Every October, I get a rush of productivity, which for many years was accompanied by an appropriate chilliness in the air and the turn towards winter. It is the season for buying books and getting scarves out of the closet and getting revved up for a play-off chase and letting the briskness in the air fill your head with new ideas

    I absolutely get you on feeling the rituals of fall deep in your bones even when the thermometer doesn’t reflect what every fiber in your being is yearning for. Growing up in the midwest, I still expect crisp fall mornings in September even though I’ve been in California now for almost 30 years and know that we’ll have weather in the 90s well into October. Still, when September comes, I start wanting to wear plaid and cozy sweaters, and I can’t help myself in the kitchen, either: roasted Brussels sprouts and cauliflower, baked apples, rich soups, succulent roasts. It might still be grilling weather outside, but the core of my being rebels against it. Hang on to October! I support you!

    Way to hold on to your fall spirit in the midst of a Botswana heatwave. Just close your eyes and click your heels as you savor that sausage and fennel plus your pumpkin bread. Gorgeous photos.

    You remind me of the first year we lived in Tucson, after moving from Detroit. I do miss jacarandas! It sounds like Botswana and California are both losing their battles, so it’s more important than ever to hang on to some rituals.

    I’m a journalist based in the Mideast and started reading your blog site today to get an idea of life in Botswana. My news agency will soon be relocating me to Botswana to cover Southern Africa. I have to do all the relocating business myself.

    I was wondering if it is possible to get a work permit/visa once I’m in Botswana or whether it has to be organised before entering. I’ve perused the Botswana govt website but they don’t address this issue specifically so do you have any idea?

      Hi Mel,

      Welcome to Botswana! (soon) I think you actually have to be in country to obtain your work permit, as they require you to be fingerprinted at the Department of Labour as part of the process. You can enter the country on a 90-day tourist visa and then immediately start the process of the work permit (your company should hire a visa handler as there are many forms to fill out and paperwork from your employer required). It can take quite a while so it’s best to start as soon as you can after arrival.

      I wrote a post about my immigration experience on this blog actually:

      Best of luck and let me know if you have any other questions–

        Thanks for that Sara that has saved me some hassle. I will go and read your other post.

        Do you know of anybody who has a small furnished apartment or wants to share accommodation with an older woman?

        Oh there’s loads of other questions I’d like to ask you – being a journalist and new to Botswana etc. but maybe we can meet for coffee when I get go Gabs.

        By the way your kids are gorgeous.

          Thanks very much for the compliment Mel! I’m happy to answer other questions: if you send me an email through the “About Me” page on this blog, I can email you directly. There are a few Facebook pages you should join to look for accommodation and to get all the info you need about town; I can direct you to them. And of course we’ll have to meet for coffee when you arrive!
