Salatiga has always been known as a cooler place. I remember putting on blanket even during my naptime in the afternoon. But that was years ago, at least until I was in highschool. Salatiga has become hotter and
hotter, after all the huge trees that used to decorate the streets of Salatiga were being cut down for the sake of “development”.
So, when rain finally came, it was such a huge relief for me. The air became so fresh, clean and refreshing. The good old days seem to come back to me: cool weather, afternoon strolls, good snacks along the streets of my hometown. It’s true that I’m not so much into rain, because I dislike the gloomy feeling that is created by the dark clouds. But I can’t help welcoming the freshness of the rain that makes Salatiga’s hot weather is bearable.
I just hope that my friends out there, who often wonder how Salatiga looks like these days, can come and see it during rainy season, for the sake of the good old days…
