Summertime at last. That is, summertime if you live in the southern hemisphere. We northerners tend to forget that people living south of the equator experience the seasons the other way around. We tend to view this as a quaint anachronism and a good opportunity for travel to somewhere warm when it's cold and dark in the north. Really though, there is no reason but history for one season to be the preferred summer and the other not. So, to honour our friends south of the equator, let's celebrate summer in Tasmania.
