Dancing in Qurtuba

Last night, leaving a dinner with special friends, as we exited, we stopped in our tracks. It was raining! It was a gentle rain; we hadn’t heard a thing.

It was a little wet; that wasn’t a clue, sometimes people wash down their garden areas. It was the smell – there is nothing, nothing like the smell of rain, especially in a dusty, dry country, rain has a magical effect on the dust, and a wonderful, clean smell. Rain on the trees, rain on the garden, rain on everything – we danced all the way to the car.

We’re up a little late, this Friday morning, getting ready for church, still smiling from all the fun we had last night, but I haven’t forgotten you. The sun is a little higher in the sky, but with the clouds – still a photo worth taking.

Have a great day, Kuwait!

  4. You must have sent the rain our way. In Doha we awoke to a rare grey day followed by a couple of hours of steady rain. No Gene Kelly moments:-) but I appreciated it immensely. I do wonder if the desert will bloom as a result …

  6. Yes! Yes, ShoSho! – send them as attatchments! Woo HOOO!
