I am happy to report that rain has finally come to Mumbai. Besides alleviating the dust and water rationing, the rain is a welcome relief because it had gotten so humid it felt like I was walking around in a cloud. I guess with over 95% humidity, it couldn't get any muggier without rain!
While it's still fairly muggy at the hottest part of the day, I was able to walk around in jeans for over an hour Friday night without melting into a puddle.
We're back to full days with running water at the flat (was never a problem at the office), and we haven't needed the AC to sleep for several nights.
On the downside, I've learned that we may need to iron clothes after washing if we want to avoid mildew...
