Coming from the UK, rain definitely isn’t a special event! However, as it only rains a few times a year (less than 20), here in Santiago, it really is a special event.
On Wednesday, as the end of my working day was drawing closer, I heard squeals of delight from the children in my class as they realised it was raining. And not just raining, there was thunder and lightening too! It made me laugh, as it’s such a comparison to our reaction at rain in the UK.
Anyway, the reason I don’t mind rain in Santiago is because it clears the smog away and also means there is more snow in the mountains. So the second I got home, I got to see these views from my balcony. I grabbed my camera and stared in amazement at how beautiful the views were.With clear skies, came even more dramatic sunsets a few hours later. It really was the most beautiful!And finally this…
This was the first time I had seen rain since arriving in Chile in the beginning of November. I started to forget all about what rain felt like! It actually had rained in January during the night and we woke up to it being the main story on the news as it is so unusual that it rains during the summer.
Have a lovely weekend! ❤
