A night with rain

It rained again last night. This is the second time it has rained here in Fuengirola since the beginning of September. It’s been a fantastic post summer so far with warm (but cooling) evenings.

Last night around 11:30 as it started to rain I go to sit out outside in nothing warmer than a dressing gown and I got to enjoy a single malt and half a pack of Benson & Hedges while all the dust and sand was washed away.

It amazed me how quickly a town not too used to rain calms down when a heavenly downpour starts. Nothing could be heard but rain meeting concrete and asphalt, while all that could be seen were a few hidden lights and glow of civilization.

Not the sound of drunkenness nor sirens interrupted this extended moment and for that I’m thankful.
