Just after I wrote the previous post, we have had two days of dramatic thunderstorms and rain here in Nairobi! Suddenly from hot and humid, we had flooded roads and grey skies after weeks of sun and canny hawkers selling umbrellas in the CBD.
The dust has settled, everyone is happy. A friend of mine says that two days of rain in the middle of a hot period is described by farmers as 'grass rains'. I think our yellow, crispy lawn has certainly appreciated the drink.
