Rain is the same everywhere.
We had a guest staying with us last summer. He came from Helsinki where he lived in a super comfortable flat with central heating and double glazing. During his stay he used to sit outside in the mornings, a thriller and an iPod in his lap, admiring the undulating sea of hills.
‘Lucky you, you live in paradise,’ he said to me. ‘It’s impossible to get stressed here. You just look at this scenery, and your muscles relax.’
