Rain in Campania
Finally rain came to us too. We waited for it pratically all summer and september.
There were more rains befor but now the clima is more hot. Even the palms were suffering this year.
When you come here for the first time you think it's paradise. Cold clima and evergreen plants. I learned here that many plants we believe annual can live many years and more they live more are beautiful.
I think it's because of many rains.
But the rains are not so innocent as in nothern countries. It falls so much water! When it rains you can go out from the house only with the car or with fisher-boots.
Here you can see the result of the rain of yesterday night. Water took a piece of asphalt, teared it and threw it in the other place. So we have all street in these conditions today. Where the asphalt is not opend, it's like a sea with waves. And in some places it's impossible to pass with a car.
Interesting is, the footways in roman Pompei are about 50 cm higher than carriageway. Antient people were not so stupid as we want to believe.
