Wow, this afternoon and up until now the first thunderstorm this year hit Berlin. Along with the first substantial rainfall this season. The sound of rain splashing outside my window is very soothing and the air smells fresh and clean. On my way home from the tube station lightning almost got me and the ensuing thunder was so close I got startled and jumped with the deafening noise. Of course I got soaked to the bone, but that’s the fun part of it. Being on your way home, that is. Would be different if it were on the way to work or to somewhere else you have to look decent upon arrival. But as it is, I feel quite cosy in my pyjamas now, towel around the neck, looking out of the window into the dark to the sound of trickle.
