|Gloom rainy day in Buddha Point - Thimphu, Bhutan (Summer 2015)|
Hissss.......... Sound of rain drop was buzzing incessantly on my ears this afternoon, even in my sleep. I pulled the blanket up from my toe to head fully, to ensure the cold air wouldn't enter. The coldness was hardly to bear. I couldn't imagine that it was summer here now in Thimphu, the season that I thought was going to be warm in the afternoon.
Raining made me lazy to go anywhere. Bed and home seemed to be the best places to be during this time, with hot tea held with both hands. The cough syrup and the flu tablet made me feeling drowsy, my head was heavy and easily dozing off.
All my shirts were short sleeves, none of them was a long one. I brought only one sweater and one waterproof jacket to shield me from the rain. Two long pants had to be washed one after another while the rest of the three-quarter and short pants were lying idle inside my suitcase. That too, needed days to make it dry!!! Oh, how I wished I could bring more long sleeve shirts and sweater here to keep my body warm from this torturing cold weather.
Umbrella was a must-have thing in your bag at anytime, wherever you go. It would be useful under the morning scorching sun, and followed with a sudden downpour in the afternoon time. Sometimes, it would just a drizzling rain that made you confused whether to open your umbrella or stick it inside your bag. At the end, these tiny drops of rain on your head, made you sick unknowingly. And here, I was one of the victim of this ever changing weather.
This would be my first time traveling in Bhutan during summer time (June to July). And now I believed on what people said, not to choose this season to travel. Other than ever changing hot and rain weather in a day, the condition of the road was another thing that made people travel inconveniently. Muddy and slippery road was common here and made you difficult even only to get out from your house. Nevertheless, this trip had all been worth it for me as I was able to meet most people I'd planned to meet and go to places I'd planned to see. And all this wouldn't be achieved without the help of all my Bhutanese friends who had been so friendly, care, nice, and helpful to me. Thank you, thank you, and thank you everyone of you, who had made all my dreams coming true... :)
