First Rain

Well we just had our first heavy rain today    – great thunder-head clouds and a real downpour – only lasted about 1 hr but it was sufficient to clear all the air in the Chiang Mai valley and cool us down.  The seasons are changing now to the rainy season, somewhat cooler and definitely cooler evenings.  What a difference, you can see all the mountains surrounding us – nice and clear, free of dust.
