Not quite summer

It seems I spoke too soon. All day, the clouds piled up over the sea of Marmara. Lightning flickered across the Anatolian side of the city, and thunder rumbled. Admittedly, those big bruised clouds have only graced us with a light smattering of drizzle – not nearly enough to prevent the dire water shortage that’s definitely lying in wait for Istanbul this summer – but it made a good show nonetheless. Sitting here by my open window, allowing the cooler air to drive out the heat that seems to have accumulated in our house over the last few days, I remember how much I actually like the rain.

    • Oh tell me about it! I think that’s the last we’ll see for a while…. how long have you got to wait for the monsoons? Hope you’re doing okay – I’ve missed your writing! xxx
