Ugh, there goes my tablet again with its pesky capitalizing. Oh well, I am posting from bed.
Bits of the whirlwind trip come back to me at odd times, and i think I forgot to mention a most amazing thing. Maybe I didn’t, it’s hard to go back in a tablet and look; no CTRL+F. If I mentioned it before, it was worth mentioning twice, at least for a weather junkie like me.
When we were flying from Seoul to Mumbai, maybe somewhere around Thailand (North of) kinda, there was the MOST AMAZING lightening storm. We were above the clouds, and therefore above the lightening, so it was a perspective I have never had before. The clouds were thick and grey and fluffy and parts would flash over and over and over. Then somewhere else, then move back to the original spot. Then at times the whole expanse would light up. Purple, my favourite; electric and alive. It must have been the biggest storm or set of storms, because even though we were flying fast, it was with us for somewhere between 1 – 2 hours. I never heard thunder, we were probably too far up, and i was never scared. It was just a truly amazing weather experience I will never forget.
Next for the monsoons in Mumbai?
