Wet midsummer in Phuket

The rain season is in full swing. Today is the midsummer eve, or juhannus, which is a big event in Finland. The folks back home have been suffering from a bad weather during the spring until now, when the summer officially starts. 

Some people might think of escaping the cold Finnish weather to the paradise island of Phuket. These today's photos might show that we don't not always enjoy the eternal sunshine.

I saw some nice videos of Swedish midsummer festival. When I did a youtube search for Midsummer in Finland. This was the first video. I'll just let it be here :D
