What The Rain Did

Today we had intermittent heavy rain and with the ground still humid from the previous rain, we saw a fair bit of damage to dirt roads and flooding on side streets, nevertheless you could still get around without too much of a problem.
Below is a photo of the the entrance to the swanky Puerto Paraiso Mall, situated at the end of Leona Vicario Street, which acts like a direct funnel for the rain straight into its main doors, however, they got wise and erected this barrier, causing the runoff to detour a short way to the boat ramp and the marina.
This next photo was snapped right in front of our office on the marina and shows what can happen in a heavy rain if you are not checking your panga....
