Last week you were caught in a sudden shower of rain. Write an email to your friend describing the experience.

Many thanks for the lovely T-shirt you sent me.I must tell you about yesterday’s experience – got caught in a sudden shower of rain. I was on my way to the market when suddenly the sky darkened and the heavens opened and we were caught in the heavy downpour. The sky had been a clear blue when I had set out so I was carrying neither an umbrella nor a raincoat. So, within seconds, I was completely drenched. Luckily there was a street vendor nearby selling umbrellas and I hastily bought one. I don’t think I’d had it up even one minute, when the rain stopped and not another drop came down that day! What a shame!!
