When it rains in June…

Ah, such a lovely morning here in Lahore. I am glad to report that its been raining since ‘late yesterday night’/’early morning’. I have been out in rainy roads. Wish I had a camera with me and I could take some pictures while I was on my way to office this morning. By 1:22pm, I can still feel raindrops keep falling on my head.

I was talking to my buddy few minutes ago who is in London at the moment, telling me that its raining in London too but shares how much he enjoys when it rains back home. Nothing’s like when it rains in Hottest month of June. And with all the stocks of mangoes in fridge… :)

Here’s some of his feelings that I want to share with metrobloggers: “How i wish i could be in Lahore…enjoy a good meal at zouk or maybe waris nehari..and then give in to kami’s demand for a pan from barkat in main market…stay up all night reading or watching all the latest movies that are yet to be released in london…and just before the morning prayers..drive down the empty roads for halwa puri at ‘capri’..the nashta spot for my generation or perhaps royal park… “

I guess he was just too hungry but, Man, he misses Lahore. :) Especially when I tell him its raining here!

Samosay, pakoray anyone? *wink*

    hi there…
    i had halwa puri at capri, with yasir, also a metbogger and a few other friends..

    I must say, its highly overrated!!

    thats my opinion, but when any lahori is in Karachi, do try Halwa Puri at Dilpasand…

    Well, as i walked out of my house to embrace rain with all of its freshness,joyness and remembering all the “rains” of different cities like Peshawar, Quetta,Murree,Kaghan,Muzaffarabad i was gifted by a mudbath(courtesy of a speedy driver passing by a roadside pool).My romance ended right there and cursing i came back to have the aaloo chholay at home.

    I had my last exam of the semester this morning. Absolutely beautiful of the weather to turn the way it has…

    I was up early today trying to study when it started to rain… and I excitedly reported it in all my outgoing emails.

    I truly agree… there’s nothing like a Lahori rain in June.

    Sweet nostalgia!

    I miss the thunder and rain of Lahore. It rains in winters, here in California, and people curse it and long for sunny days of summer. Only wish they had spent their childhood roaming the streets of Lahore in June/July rains. Climbing Jamun trees and eating sour mangoes (ambiaN) with salt and chili – stolen from neighbor’s garden!

    The very night it rained. One of my friend asked me to pick me up from his office at 2 AM. I was there in front of his office 10 min before time. It was such a nice weather then, with such a cooooooool breeze blowing. Picked him up and straightly went to have Cock’n’Bull’s shawarma.

    It started raining when we were leaving Cock’n’Bull and we decided to have a long drive. Thanks to CNG that makes long drives cheaper ;). The route that we followed was, Cock’n’Bull DHA to Canal Bridge on Jail Road, from there towards Dharampura – Mughalpura – Saddar – Rahat – Allama Iqbal International Airport – Bhatta Chowk – DHA again – Walton Kainchi – Kalma Chowk – Canal Bridge on Ferozepur Road – Doctors’ Hospital and back to home PCSIR.

    Really enjoyed long drive in Rain.

    :( aaah….thats probably one of the things i miss most about lahore. The Rain! And that whole route detailed by haroonzq….was fun thinking about it, the canal and the mall are the ultimate places to be on during the rain.
