Amboina, 2 July 1893

Today in the morning were were again surprised, after we had enjoyed the sight of the sun the day before, by a heavy downpour so that we had to remain calm in our cabins. The land was barely visible as everything was fully enveloped by fog and clouds.

After mass we stood around in groups in front of the cabins and looked up to the grey sky whether the rain would ever stop. But there was no hope for today. Still I drove out to the sea gardens again in the afternoon to fish some corals with my people.

Then I paid a final visit to the resident’s family. The whole park near the palace had been turned into a lake. The main topic of conversation naturally was the rain.
