When you live in the part of the world where there are rainy seasons and dry season, the first rain of the new season is a wonderful thing. Here in the Andes, the rain usually comes in November and lasts until around April. We’ve been dry here in Cochabamba since last April or May. We weren’t expecting new rain until November… and then tonight it rained! It only rained for about a half an hour, but still it was just wonderful to smell the rain.
Last year, we had a lot of rain. It kept raining, and raining, and raining. Let’s hope we have a dryer summer this year. Still, the first rain of the year was just great!
