Liquid Lahore

ah sweet summer rain is cloaking everything in lahore this morning. It’s everywhere, being wiped down furiously from windscreens, turned into happy wake by bicyclists wearing rolled up shalwars, rudely cruised through by cars. It’s on the footpaths, dripping from the green dome of the mosque on the mall, meeting itself in the canal.

Talha was playing Beautiful Day by U2 on the Breakfast Show this morning, and the Dire Straits’ Sultans of Swings followed soon after. Everywhere you looked the world was turning liquid, my city is beautiful.
