We have been so fortunate this trip to see hardly any rain but boy did the heavens open yesterday. The forecast was for 190mls in 24 hours and to batten down the hatches as a typhoon expected this morning at 10am. Well it heaved down yesterday that’s for sure and the instant flooding in the street was amazing. We woke this morning and the typhoon had passed through during the night and back to a blue sky day and no damage we can see. All kids have today off school in preparation for the anticipated typhoon.

With a bit of cabin fever we headed to the gym being careful not to trip over the many buckets set up to catch the rain coming through the numerous holes in the old tin roof.
Then it was coffee time and wow what a hoot. Cycling through the flooded streets as the rain pelted down. Talk about feeling alive!

love a good downpour in Asia!!! No point trying to stay dry and definitely not wearing your best shoes out:)
It must have been nice to see the rain after all the hot weather you have been having. It is going to be so lovely to catch up when you get back to Queensland. Reg has our Canada photos & Videos on USB’s so you can have a look at a few of those if we are able to organise a catch up. Speak to you soon, take care. Love Di & Reg xxxx
