Many of you will remember the day I was jubilant about having painted and decorated the terrace…. all by myself! Many people (including myself) also doubted that the beautiful red colour would last through the monsoon season.
The doubts were well founded. Two months into the monsoon and just about all the colour has been washed off. Not surprising, as it has been raining heavily every day in Mumbai. But what’s even worse is that the paint has been replaced by a layer of dirt and slime. Yuk! I do love the refreshing monsoon rain, but it requires a lot of restoration work afterward.
Just in case anyone needs a reminder, here is a “before the monsoon” photo of the terrace. Ahhh, it looks so pristine!
