Drops of rain

| Life in Holland

I must admit that a little bit of rain is alright, waiting outside for the next train to arrive, a drop here and there, just the right cooling on the forehead and other exposed portions of the body, in compensation of the heatwave which has been working against us the last couple of weeks.

(People are walking around as if in slow motion, slits for eyes and barely awake, the extreme heat making everyone look like they are living in some kind of exotic aquarium or whatever)

But when you get out of the train and then it starts pouring down with that deluge which is unexpected, it is a welcome relief that you have just happened to brought along that portable umbrella which opens up magically when the red button on the handle is pressed.
