There were signs this weekend and everyone I spoke to predicted the rains to come by Friday, but it is raining. It's not heavy though, not yet, I wonder if they will stay.
You cannot be seen to wish the rains to stay away. We all love the sun, but the heat is pretty stifling at the moment. We just hope they will come slowly, at first, the farmers need the land to have a quick drink so that they are thirsty for more. Hopefully the rains will not bring destruction and power cuts with it.
A lioness is prowling around the neighbourhood of Karen, disturbing the dogs and getting familiar with some gardens. Looking for food and water I guess.
This is not unusual really, last year 3 lions ran out in front on African Adventurer's car in the same area...on the same night that I saw the biggest cane rat in Kampala...my story did not quite have the same impact once he had shared his!(Have I shared that story? Sorry if I have, but I swear, if that rat was any bigger, you just needed to put a saddle on it and you could ride it! It nearly ruined going to the Irish pub for me!)
I can't say that I was (am) in a hurry for the rains to get here, (ssshhh-don't tell anyone!) because I will be sad to lose my runs in the forest. But, I am looking forward to not having ants in everything I own and sleeping through the night, rather than drowning in a pile of sweat. I'll leave you with that image.
