Tut tut, it looked like rain

Flooded streets

Saturday was quite the example of the Morton Salt slogan: “When it rains, it pours.” That, of course, refered to Morton Salt’s special quality in the day whereby you could still pour it when it rained outside (most other salts clumped up because of the humidity). But now I am referring to the torrential downpour we faced Saturday here in Cochabamba. Many streets became rivers. The normally tranquill canal that runs down my street raged. Several hours later, the water had drained for the most part, but some roads were still pretty wet (see photo).
