Monsoon Football

Wonderful – the Monsoon rains bring much needed relief from the heat, but of course, amongst other things, creates havoc on the roads!

But look here, those youngsters in Fort Cochin were not put off by the heavy downpours (I was – I stayed in the car, :)) and played their football games with vigour.






It was great fun just to sit in the car and watch them.

    • Lorraine. It has been known in the past that I rushed out into the garden or onto a terrace somewhere in the Tropics when the Monsoon rain came down for the first time in the season onto the parched land and its equally parched people. Getting literally soaked by this warm rain was a huge relief and even fun ….. I was a child again πŸ™‚ Hugs Carina πŸ™‚

  1. Great photos, must have been lots of fun watching them play. When I was a kid I loved playing outdoors in heavy summer rain, covered in mud and bits of grass we usually required hosing down before going inside to have a shower πŸ™‚

  2. Before my retirement – the days preceding our Annual day were always monsoon days – and the various teams played football and cricket on those very grounds where the youngsters in your pics are now playing. I used to be part of it, and enjoyed every minute. Brings back fond memories !!

    • hahahaha Pearl – how I would have loved to see you running after the ball – I most certainly would have been cheering the loudest. And btw, the boys were playing cricket nearby as well, but I really could not leave the car to get that shot. Carina πŸ™‚
