I finally managed to get a ticket to the Rain Room in Melbourne which is an exhibition of an 100 square metre field of continuous rainfall. You can walk around and immerse yourself in the rain without getting wet.
The last two weeks has flown by so fast and now unfortunately it is time for me to leave Manchester and head back home to Melbourne in Australia.
2 Seasons 1 Day
They say in Melbourne you can experience four seasons in one day. Today in 45minutes I experienced two.
I have been watching the weather all week and it was confirmed there was rain in Spain which I always thought fell mainly in the plain. I decided to change my flight and delay my holiday to Spain by three days to let the wet weather pass. The Daily Mail even had a story titled, So was Marbella such a good idea?
At 2.40pm on Saturday a dark cloud covered Melbourne and a storm cell unleashed itself and for 20 minutes 19 millimetres of rain bucketed down and 10cm balls of hail with such force that they bounced up from the ground to head height. Walking around yesterday was as if Armageddon had struck Melbourne and now the recovery starts. I feel sorry for all those people in rented cars who are now returning them in exchange for a huge bill for damages, Southern Cross train station had to be evacuated as heavy rain tore a hole in its roof and a deluge splashed down on the train platforms and I am thankful none of my windows were smashed
