Après la pluie...

HDP  009

After having lived almost five years next to the equator (Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand) with a constant temperature all year round (say, 30 celsius with 80% humidity) it's quite a nice change to be arriving in Vietnam where there are actual seasons.
Much to my surprise, I actually felt really good about walking around while it was drizzling; kinda felt like I was in Brittany -- damn, my Breton friends are going to kill me for just saying that.

And when the rain intensifies, you know it's time to seek shelter in a taxi to go home :).

Jer, you paint Hanoi so romantically with your words and photos.

Now, how come you never did that with Singapore, Malaysia, or Thailand, huh? :o)

Lovely shot. I quite like standing in the rain, unless I have to be somewhere.

Jérôme said...

Hey Jeremy,

dunno why I never did that before. I guess I am discovering a late passion for photography :).

Hi Kris,

and thanks! This is indeed a pleasure I am getting reacquainted to.

Like this shot and like looking out through rain apatterred glass. You might want to check on replacing those wiper blades, though.
