"Rain rain go away, please come back another day..."
As a child who loves the sunshine I used to join in with the other kids and chant that phrase.
But I love tropical rain.
The wet season in the tropics consists of heavy downpour that comes without warning. As the heavy beads of tropical water fell down onto my face, shoulder and drenching my clothes, it didn't feel cold at all. Infact what a refreshing experience, almost poetic. I indulged in that strange new sensation, very much like having a shower with your clothes on. I strolled and watched in bemusement at people running with their hands covering their heads in vain, though still getting as drenched as I was.
