These past few days it has been raining in Metro Manila late in the afternoon or at night and although the rain is a welcome respite from the heat that came with the summer more than often it is an unwelcome event for those living in the city. When it starts pouring people would run seeking shelter from the rain as if it is a plague.
I remember my Filipino-American nephew who came for a short vacation last year and it just so happen that it was during the rainy season. He would ask me why even a drizzle would send people running or taking out their umbrellas. Why do we do that anyway?
