After 60 days, the first rain

It’s raining in the rainforest and who would have thought that it could be such a blessing.
Exactly 60 days ago, the last raindrops fell from the sky and now nature can finally breathe again.

There is hardly any place left in the world where we are not exposed to the consequences of climate change.
Here in Sri Lanka, very close to the equator, we are mainly suffering from global warming. Temperatures have risen by more than 2.5 degrees on average.
But this does not mean that there is only heat throughout the year. However, the months from March to June are getting hotter and hotter, and we have already shifted our activities to the early hours of the morning.
August has always been a perfect time to travel, along with January to March, and has slowly extended to July to September. However, this is probably more true for the low mountain ranges and the highlands. On the east coast it is the dry season, but temperatures of up to 35 degrees make it difficult to enjoy.
Heavy rainfall, which can sometimes last 2 to 3 days, is usually to be expected in the months of May or June and in November.
In general, we also like to recommend the months of September to December, where the rain is spread over different times of the day. It is not so tropically hot and the nights bring pleasant sleeping temperatures. The highest risk of rain is almost always during the full-mod phase. Our rule of thumb is 3 days before and after, it is unsettled.
