It has been raining continuously for 6 weeks—well not really, it just seems like it. Every day for this past week we have had steady rain and a few booming thunderstorms, which is unusual for mid-May. However, the local wisdom (our friend, Giacomo) says that it can rain until the 20th of May, so it looks like he is right once again. It follows then, that the rains will come to a screeching halt this coming Friday. Right?
In any case, it is true that the rains never fail to clean the air, giving clarity and richness to the colors like no other time.
Following is a gallery of pictures showing the magnificent results from the spring rains.
