‘Raindrops keep falling on my head..’

November 11, 2010

After weeks of teasing thunder and lightening, rain finally fell in Longido, signalling the start of the short rainy season.  La Chica however spent a damp night in her bed when her window to the sky decided to let the rain in.  She awoke in the early hours of the morning to find her blanket and mattress soaked with rainwater, putting a dampner on her celebration of the much needed rain.  Namnyak has been tasked with covering up La Chica’s skylight with makute, at least for the duration of the rainy season.  No more spotting the alapa (moon) and alakra (stars) for La Chica from the comfort of her bed.
