Well it was bound to happen. I've been here for five weeks and have managed to escape walking in the rain to or from work until now.
When I got off work I could see how dark it was outside, I knew there was no escaping the wet stuff. But I came prepared.
I always carry an umbrella but I also have a military issue poncho. No points for style, but what it lacks in style in makes up for keeping me and my backpack dry. Supplement that with my umbrella and I'm pretty dry, less my shoes and the bottom quarter of my pants!
I knew that pocho would come in handy one day!
