The rain was pouring down on my friends and I. We only owned one umbrella and some hoodies. Yet, exploring the downtown part of the city when the natural lights were gone was a magical experience.
Towards the evening, sellers, whom were mostly older women, sold fruits and veggies and perhaps other types of food in these outdoor markets that were only protected by plastic rooftops.
Red, white, and other colorful lights hung across buildings. People still wandered through the streets, took shelter under buildings roofs, or even bargained with sellers for umbrellas.
Overall, it was an experience under a summer monsoon.
