As I start to head back to the train station it starts to rain again, nothing to worry about, it was a light rain.
I head for a Belgian frites (fries, chips) stand and order my frites with mayonnaise.
As I waited, I got the distinct impression that someone was dumping all the water from the canals on the city, the way someone would dump a glass of water.
Fumble for the umbrella…..again…..balance an umbrella in one hand; hold the Frites in another and with my other hand actually enjoy them. Needless to say, this was NOT going to work.
I run for shelter under the awning of a neighboring restaurant, something I wouldn’t usually do, but under the circumstances, it was much better than becoming so saturated that I would melt (yes I am made of sugar) The rain did let up to a light drizzle and I was able to get to the train station without looking like a wet rat (no comments please)
My umbrella was so saturated it no longer kept the rain off; my camera bag was saturated as well. My camera was in the bottom and did not get wet.
I really don’t enjoy walking around in the rain…../end editorial comment
