text: During the night suddenly a thunderstorm broke out. Lightning flashed and the rain beat so heavily on my palm leaf roof that I expected the water to come running through any moment, but the roof kept tight and only a little bit of rain splashed through the slits in the wall. In the morning, however, all had vanished and soon the sun shone in a cheering blue sky.
