Be wet with a decent happiness

We got some rain this morning, surprisingly, as the weather forecast didn't promise any. But there were clouds coming from the sea and raining over Helsinki. I commuted by bus today, managing to do a bit of reading there, and didn't have an umbrella with me, but luckily the rain had mostly stopped when the bus arrived in Helsinki.

Later it was rather hot, and we went to a nearby lake with the children to enjoy the warm evening.

Happy to see the bus are almost empty. In Rome, where I live, buses are sometimes so crowded that you hardly can get in.

@Francesco: Well, in Helsinki buses are nowhere so crowded as in big cities like Rome, but this also depends on the route, some of them are much more popular than others. But usually there is plenty of space on the route I'm using.
