The two days following our client visit, we focussed ourselves on brainstorming strategies that would give our clients the biggest chance of success. We divvied up the work and played to everyone’s strengths.
Suddenly all hell broke loose. A torrential rain like we have not seen started pouring, accompanied with a deafening thunder. Not missing a beat, Dom and I went outside to enjoy the storm.

It was an absolutely beautiful experience. Cold water from the rain heated up immediately as it hits the warm ground. I laid down on the floor, water rushing everywhere. I closed my eyes and enjoyed the moment. When I got back up, I realised that a bunch of tourists as well as hotel workers and other onlookers had gathered and taking photos an videos of our shenanigans.
Funnily enough, as we went back into the hotel, we asked for towels. They promptly came with raincoats instead. Dom and I just looked at each other in disbelief. Certainly, if we needed raincoat, we would have grabbed them before going in the rain, but that would have defeated the purpose. It was evident that such bold and impulsive behaviour on our part was a complete unexplainable mystery to the local onlookers and hotel staff!
