Monsoon...

Right now, it is heavily raining but according to my Bhutanese friends, Monsoon hasn't started yet. I have a good umbrella so walking around in rain is not too bad; although if it is really heavily raining, then at least your feet are getting wet. But there is something else that worries me a little bit: my apartment doesn't yet have a roof. During the few short rainy moments that we had in the past, my ceiling and the walls have been getting wet quite a bit. Extrapolating from the rain we had so far to a possible monsoon, I get pretty scared. My assumption is that if we don't get a roof during the next maybe 10 days, I'll probably have to look for a different place to stay.
We mentioned the problem more than three times (that's when Bhutanese start to take action) but nothing has happened so far. So keep your fingers crossed - or send me some tin!

Wow, that really sounds scary! Here in Denmark summer has begun, so no rain here :-)

Lucky you! Soon I'll get rain and mosquitos. Not looking forward to it - but at least it will cool down a little bit ;-).
