Autumn showers

While I can't stand it when the humidity shoots up and all my work notes and papers feel just slightly moist all the time, rainy days in the cool fall can be great. Had a massive downpour in Kyoto the other day when we were out, and after a good drenching it felt fantastic walking through the Shinkyogoku arcade while it was pouring nearby.
