Rain on a tin roof

Every african knows the sound of Rain on a tin roof.

Corrugated iron roofing sheets are widely used in Africa, both in heavy industry as well as in remote villages. Low cost iron sheeting has in its own way brought development to many remote areas in Africa.

We visited Lycksele djurpark and my best part of the day was seeking shelter from a sudden downpour under a tin roof.  The sound of Rain on a tin roof , is one of the most nostalgic and comforting sounds I know.
