The rain came down, and the floods came up…

Joburg has become a way more ameezing place since my little brother, Joel, moved to town.  Unfortunately, a few days ago when it rained so much I considered buying Crocs (kidding), Joel’s room at my Aunt and Uncle’s house flooded with 7cm of water.  That doesn’t sound like alot but glance down and you’ll be amazed how much is going on from carpet to top of skirting board.  On Joel’s floor it was his entire book collection (an enviable book collection at that).  Lifting your duvet cover to be sprayed with the rain water that has become your roommate can never be a fun experience.

When I asked Joel how he felt about the flooding he said that is was upsetting and frustrating but that these things happen,  possessions come and go.  A wise and gracious answer from a wise and gracious brother.

Aadil took these beautiful photographs of the rescue mission and drying process of almost one hundred books.
