The Rain's are Here!

>> Friday, July 31, 2009

So the monsoon has well and truly dropped on us here in the Kathmandu Valley, and I have realised that I need to keep an umbrella at every single place I go to regularly. Just because the sun is shining doesn't mean that the sky will not cloud over and dump buckets of water on me within minutes. So I've counted and I need 7 umbrellas: an umbrella for my bicycle (I only need one hand for steering and breaking!), one for the scooter, one at work, two at home (in case hubby steals one), one at hubby's shop, and I would really like to keep one at the local grocer...just in case!

So here are some beautiful and unique umbrellas that would suit me just fine for this monsoon season. The umbrellas come in all different sizes with different handles and fabrics all handmade by Yoshihisa Iida, a Japanese man who makes gorgeous parasols too.

Oh I completely agree! Hence why I think I need to store one everywhere I go so at least I will have myself covered (no pun intended) =)
