Rain Angels……………

August 25, 2009

It’s monsoon season in Delhi. I have not had my camera with me the few times that it has been an absolute down pour and I do promise to try to do better with that. The rain here can be unbelievable. It is beautiful and can be deadly.

But it did rain at our house the other day and I actually had my camera ready. I thought I would share with you why we are enjoying having outside space now.


Rain angels? Okay – not quite as pretty as snow angels – but at least as fun and much warmer.


Who needs a fancy slip and slide when you have a slate patio and rain?



And this is what they think of me taking their picture. And, yes, I am standing inside – where it’s dry!

    There are very few occasions when I think purposefully standing in the rain is fun… but I think I would have to change my mind if I had your patio to enjoy it on.
