We are in the middle of the rainy season here in Guinea and this means two or three months of endless rain. That is what people told me when I arrived but I believed that this might be a slight exaggeration considering that I’ve lived through six and half years of ‘rainy season’ in London (where every season is rainy).
To my despair, they weren’t exaggerating… It rains all the time. And trust me, when I say all the time, I mean all the time. Sometimes heavy but mostly it is light rain. All you need to do is watch the weather report to see what I mean. Forecast: Rain. When? All the time.
Conakry is already a pretty ugly city, so take the sunshine away and the city loses whatever beauty and charm it had, which was not much to begin with. Here are some photos from the drive home yesterday which took us longer than normal due to the traffic caused by the rain.
