So we went to one of the rainiest places in Maharashtra. Mahabaleshwar. In July. This year the rains were less than normal. But still the place was in the clouds all the time. I did not want to come back. :)

It rains so much here that whole building are plastic wrapped. Those few which are open have protection from the incessant rain.
