Second Childhood?

Sometimes I wonder why I am in Bahrain – where there is no rain at all in the summer and very little in the winter, when in any case, you do not need it!
Stepping out into the backyard on a rather “cool” and breezy summer afternoon (it’s ONLY 37 Degrees C today) made me miss the terrible summer storms we had back home when I was growing up, the water flowing on the streets, the resultant traffic snarls and, of course, getting drenched on the way back from school!
But, as they say, time moves on and we grow up!
Childhood doesn’t return, does it?
