The Rain Returns

The lightning returned for a second show on Thursday night.  That night, Bryce, one of the Tibetan translators, and I ventured into the small town below the Deer Park Institute in search of chocolate.  Although several shops had chocolate, Bryce was not satisfied with the selection.  One shop, however, had what he was looking for:  chocolate with fruit and nuts!
On the way home, we heard thunder and saw lightning flashes getting closer and closer.  The first raindrops fell as we were about 100 yards from the gates of the compound.  These first raindrops were only the beginning of another strong storm.  This storm had more lightning and thunder than the previous day’s storm, but it was not as windy.  I tried to photograph the lightning, but the images I recorded are not very good.
We lost power again, but it was restored before I went to sleep.
