I can't help but express the release that rain is bringing to life here as I write this. It's a long way short of a monsoon feeling, but still and all it's early May - and it hasn't rained here for weeks. Enjoyable though the sunshine has been, a scorching Easter, it's all felt wrong: the ground has cracked hard, forest fires - at a time when we should have had April showers.
I know this will look silly in a few weeks when probably half the country will be under water.
