Rain!

2004-01-08

The winds of the Harmattan have made the country cold and gray for the past two days. Temperatures usually hover around 35+ during the day, but lately it’s been closer to 25 degrees.

I felt it in the air. I knew it was the dry season, but I felt it.

It rained today!

Not hard, mind you, but this was the first time it’s rained in more than two months. I left the class I was teaching and stood outside. Precipitation!

Though, I’m sure I’ll be seeing enough rain and snow and wind and cold in 13 days, when I leave this tropical paradise of a country and travel around Europe.

It’s hard to believe my time here is nearly up. Next week is my last week of work, and I’m feeling great… it’s a beautiful place, but I’m glad to be leaving.
