Rain, rain, rain
Late May marks the beginning of rainy season in Japan. It means rain, rain, rain every single day for the whole month of June. I like the sound of the rain and I like the fresh smell of after the rain, but I don't enjoy soaked shoes and a frizzy mane.
Yet, I don't let the rain bring me down or change my plans- I still ride my bicycle in the rain (one hand illegally holding an umbrella) and take up opportunities to go out. Thank goodness for Hunter's rain boots and hooded sweaters.
The next four weeks might be a little more boring and grey than usual, but then again, maybe not. Hello, iced coffees and movie marathons and sleeping to the sound of the rain.
