The past couple of days it has turned colder and threatened rain. Finally today about 3:00 it let loose. It got very dark, the rain was heavy and interspersed with hail, and it was very windy. When I got back to our apartment (I am happy that it is under cover between the office and home!) there was a leak in our kitchen window. I think it was because the wind happened to be blowing in that direction. By about 6:00 it had cleared up and I got this shot toward the west from our balcony.
Last evening we walked to the top of the hill to have dinner with friends. This gorgeous lampshade is made from camel skin, painted and with many tiny holes punched in it.
