I got rain for my birthday. I haven’t seen it since March back in Ljubljana. Yesterday and the day before it rained in Jeddah.
The scent of hot and wet asphalt brought back the memory of a real summer in Slovenia, when a storm would brew in high heat and then the temperatures would drop. Usually I would stay home in such a weather.
But in this case I went out, really wanting to soak in the rain drops. I was wishing for them for weeks. And they came, just for me.
