Finally, the day arrived I’ve been waiting for all year. Today I got on a train to go see my old lizard. I found her just the way I left her. She looked at me for a very long time and I am sure she recognized me and is happy to see me.
On the train here from Bucharest I saw the most unbelievable thing – something I have never seen before during countless train journeys on the same route. As we passed green fields I noticed some sizable birds flying around. They were flying low in a peculiar kind of way. And there were tons of such birds. I kept noticing them at different points in my journey. It took me a while to figure out they were pheasants. Wild pheasants in the fields. I take them as a sign that nature is healthy and bountiful. And also as a good omen.
