I was here briefly in July for a few days, reasonably warm, dry and dusty as is most of this part of the world.
Since I turned up on Saturday I’ve seen a city fairly submerged after the rainy season, where once there were flat (ish) smooth (ish) roads there are now undefined areas under a shallow puddle which are akin to driving over a lunar landscape. Where there were once parks and areas of waste land, there are now veritable Olympic size pools of water, and in front of the national stadium there is a lake.
Its now not rained for four days, and slowly the waters are subsiding, which of course means the 47265426067829848768547697 mosquito’s have less places to swim and so are heading in search of human prey. Some people just aren’t a pleasant sight currently.
