Monsoon in Jaipur



It's September and monsoon is still going strong. Despite the mosquitos, humidity, and flash floods that the rain brings, I found enjoyment in it today.

Mud + sticks = happiness!

I took the above picture just as "activities" were starting at school. Just minutes later a downpour began.  This inspired Shahina didi to do mud sculptures during her usual arts and crafts.

A bowl of mud and a few sticks can provide great entertainment! 

Turtles 

My turtle making skills were unsuccessful, so I made an awesome smiley face




























I can say with certainty that if I was presented with a bowl of mud a year ago, I would not have been quick to  dig in. However, there's something very freeing about playing in mud, in the rain.

Happy Monsoon! :)
