Let the Rains Fall

Nigeria has two seasons: dry and wet. The rains have begun (at least intermittently) in the city of Jos that sits at an elevation slightly above 4,000 feet in Plateau State; it generally lasts until mid-September. Before long, the crisp, brown landscape will turn into lush green vegetation, mosquitoes will flourish (along with malaria, I assume), and Nigerians will sleep deeply to the sound of rain hitting their roofs and cars. Ah, there’s nothing like a good downpour to cure insomnia.
