April is the hottest and driest month in a year in South East Asia. Hopefully this year we spending it in shady jungles instead of deadly hot Bangkok. But even here we were waiting for a rain. Since middle of the month, heavy and grey clouds started to appear. Every day we were hopping for a rain, but got only a few drops one time.
Yesterday, finally, was a real tropical rain with endless rain streams that can easily transform to rivers and wash down to the ocean everything on their way.
It was marvelous, full water rain for about couples of hours. The rain washed out all dust from palm leafs and trees. Evergreen forest got new water and freshness and became even more green.
Jungles are smell different after rain, sweet smell of tropical flowers combined with a bit of mold and mushrooms.
After sunsets frogs began concerts that for long for a whole night with billion of sound other jungles creatures, like it was wonderful after rain music.
Notable, that yesterday was a day of full moon. The day when due to lunar calendar rainy season has to began. Few days before yesterday all local families cleaned their land from leafs and yellow grass. Seems that weather came just on time. Next month will be the most rainy season in a year, will see how we will like this.
