Playing in the warm rain was one of the most fun things I did in the Philippines. Sometimes it would rain so hard that the streets would get flooded and kids would turn the neighborhood into a big water park. Some kids swam; some rode their bikes and trikes; others would make boats and sail them. My grandmother never wanted me and my brother to play in the rain and flood because it was dirty. But we disobeyed her and played anyway.
