The rain here is nothing like anything I have experienced before. In London - sure it rained a lot - but it was always sort of a gentle downpour. If you had a good umbrella you wouldn't get too wet. Here - when it rains - it POURS!
This morning I got caught in a sudden downpour. I whipped my umbrella out of my bag straight away, but still got SOAKED! It was coming down so hard that my trousers got wet up to my knees, my shoes filled with water and my knee high socks are soaking wet.
I hate having wet feet - I should have worn boots today to avoid it - how annoying!
