There is rain, and then there is rain.
Today it has rained almost non stop, from 5.30 am till 6.30pm.
It has poured from the sky like someone has ripped open the cloud with a knife. Endless rain, dark grey and black skies briefly glimpsed through rain that bounces a foot into the air. rain drops the size of a fifty piece piece,clouds hanging low over the jungle trees, birds sitting miserably on branches and small mackat monkeys huddled together in the undergrowth....and still it is hot, still it is 25C and the forecast is for more. There will be flash floods and flooded rivers, snakes will come out of the jungle, followed by all sorts of icky wildlife, roaches, rats and spiders.
And then the sun will come out and everything will steam for a day, the puddles will go, some flowers will bloom and everyhting will look the same all over again.
Life in the rain forest.
