Last night it rained here in Bangkok. Spectacular thunderclaps woke me at 3 am and rattled the windows.
This morning I woke to a whole new city. Gone was the oppressive heat of the past few weeks replaced by a cool breeze and fresh smelling air. Everything looked new, clean and bright. The Khlong beneath my window flowing faster and clearer, the trees greener. Even the birds in the trees sounded happier. A city refreshed and renewed by the revitalising power of water!
