RAINSTORM-150x150Today has been like a perfect “Winter day” here in Suriname. Instead of snowing, it has been raining the entire day, I haven’t seen the sun once, low temperature and by 16.00hrs it was already getting dark.

This did make the perfect hangover weather. It was one of those mornings after a night of partying with your friends, where you really don’t feel like doing much and just enjoy some quiet, alone time. However earlier that morning was I was woken by the sound of the alarm of my car, which my dad accidentally had tripped. Not long after that it was my mom that made the smoke alarm go off in the kitchen. As soon as all was silent again I wrapped myself in my blanket and slept the entire afternoon.

Since it’s the rain season and December lots more winter days like these are expected and I can’t wait.
