June in Prague again. I had forgotten quite how dramatic it can be.
Some time yesterday was spent lying in the baking heat, then Jess called me on my way home and invited me out for a drink at a pizza restaurant by my old house. On the bus there I heard occasional thunder and as I found them under an awning I could feel the air getting tense around me. By now the sky was full of deep red storm clouds moving swiftly toward us. And then, safely sheltered (so we thought) such thunder, the sky lighting up with intricate flashes of lightning. Then the rain! In an hour we had gone from sunbathing weather to a storm so violent it would have been reported on the news in the UK.
We dashed inside eventually, and sat watching it, eating medovnik. When the clouds cleared the sky was black and I went off home.
