Green leaves in the Rain

This is my first July in Bangalore.  The international schools are on holiday, so most of my expat friends have gone home, and life is quieter than usual.

Life is also cooler.  The rain and wind have brought an end to the stifling heat of summer.

In fact I can see from the Ashes cricket and the Open golf on TV that the weather is actually warmer and drier in the UK than it is here today.

We don’t need air-conditioning in the house now, but I am constantly opening and closing windows, switching ceiling fans on and off, trying to get the perfect balance between temperature and humidity, while letting in the most fresh air and the fewest mosquitoes.

We have a lovely green garden now – this was the view during one rainy afternoon last week.
